      Selections from the Collection of Elaine G. Weitzen

      Elaine Graham Weitzen (1920-2017) was a private New York City art dealer and committed philanthropist whose honed eye and interest in new and emerging artists helped to create an eclectic and personal collection. Inspired by her mother’s passion for music and art, Mrs. Weitzen began collecting art in the 1950s and soon established friendships with artists Mark Tobey, Charles Seliger , George Rickey and Arnold Newman, among others. As founding Executive Director and a lifelong Trustee of the Board of the American Friends of the Israel Museum, Mrs. Weitzen worked closely with the museum and Isamu Noguchi (see photo at left) to create the Billy Rose Sculpture Garden, and worked with curators to build the museum’s collection. Included in Mrs. Weitzen’s own collection is a selection of works by Israeli artists Yehiel Shemi, Yaacov Wexler, and Yaacov Agam, and works by artists from the Middle East including Benni Efrat. A devoted member of the Board of The Sculpture Center, the Collection of Elaine G. Weitzen is rich in the area of sculpture and champions the work of young sculptors and established artists alike. Included in this sale are works from her collection by Charles Seliger, Karel Appel, José Cuevas and Joe Andoe.
