The Rockefeller collection provides a selection of masterpieces, an example of good taste and massive contribution to the charity. The biggest philanthropist of the last century, David Rockefeller, the grandson and heir of the first U.S. dollar billionaire John Rockefeller, Sr., died in the spring of 2017 at the age of 101 years. Together with his wife Margaret (everyone called her Peggy, they lived together for 56 years) David has actively collected the works of Impressionists and modernists, bought European furniture, Asian art and Antiques.

In 1994, Peggy and David Rockefeller bequeathed his collection to museums and charities. After the death of Peggy in 2010, David Rockefeller took the oath The Giving Pledge, handing over his entire fortune to charity.

The initiators of the movement, The Giving Pledge to America’s billionaires bill gates and Warren Buffett in response to the oath was joined by Vladimir Potanin.

“My father was optimistic about the human species, preferred to think the best of people quality. Perhaps because in the morning he looked in the mirror,” says David Rockefeller, Jr., head of the Rockefeller family office.

David Rockefeller began his career as a collector at the age of seven, when he began to collect beetles, and finished a few days before death. In 100 years he was engaged in fitness with the instructor and went with the assistants to the shopping personally make purchases from socks to paintings by Jamie Wyeth, and attended the solemn opening ceremony of the sculpture abi Eldritch Rockefeller at MOMA (EBI Eldritch Rockefeller, mother of David Rockefeller, one of the founders of the new York Museum MoMA).

“Cultural map of Manhattan without this family would be quite different, — said auctioneer Jonathan Randall at the meeting with Forbes Life in the new York office of Christie’s. — The cloisters (a branch of the Metropolitan Museum devoted to the artifacts of medieval Europe. — Forbes Life), galleries of Chinese art at the Metropolitan Museum, Asia Society, new York MoMA — it’s the Rockefellers. The headquarters of the UN and the system of national parks in America — they, too, and it’s not the whole list. “Each owned by the Rockefellers things will be sold, says Randall. We judged works of art, books, furniture. Working with such a large collection, we exactly remember how the home owners that where hung and how it was used”.

David Rockefeller entered the history of art is a 15-year-olds. His mother, a passionate propagandist of modern art, looking for a place for the future Museum, decided to demolish the family house on 54th street. But first she invited urban landscape painter Stefan Hirsch to paint views of new York from the window of the room of his son David. Then David certainly never dreamed that one day he will lead the Board of Trustees of the “mother” of the Museum or gather a collection of art worth hundreds of millions of dollars.

Things for the Rockefellers were not a status symbol, they daily receive from them pleasure. When David headed the Board of Trustees of MoMA, he succumbed to the charm of the Directors of the Museum, Alfred Barr and Rene d arnonkur and under their influence became a passionate and daring collector.
