THE ECLECTIC EYE: Barry Friedman's Collection. Auction Preview

reporter: Miguel Dominguez

When Barry Friedman, the Manhattan based art dealer decided to retire, a diversity of works, drawn from his homes and from his stock, were presented at Christie’s under the banner ‘The Eclectic Eye’. A preview of the items took place on April 24 which has been arranged as a series of four sales that will provide a review of the many spheres in which he has made his mark.
