For several years, Adam sender and his wife Lenore lived in their penthouse apartment on the 36th floor of a building in the SoHo Area of New York City. The 3600 sq. ft. apartment with three terraces was comfortable, but not large enough to exhibit many of their pieces of artwork. They recently moved to Miami, Florida to reside in one of their properties with a warmer winter climate.
Among the other property owned by the Senders is their Sag Harbour home in the Hamptons where they house their 14 automobiles, several of which are collectables. Among the collection of automobiles is a 1973 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible in mint condition. A beauty of a car any automobile collector would be delighted to own. The other automobiles include four Land Rovers, two Porsches, and two Benzes.
Sender’s art collection is beginning to reduced in size. Four hundred pieces of artwork are scheduled to be sold by Sotheby’s at auctions over the next eighteen months. Sotheby’s says the 400 pieces coming up for auction are works by 139 artists and will bring in millions of dollars in profits.
When asking Adam about his choices of art to purchase, he simply stated “I was trying to buy the very best work,” and obviously he did just that. His art collection is admired by so many other collectors in the world.
Some of the artwork to be sold at auction will be beautiful pieces of his Cindy Sherman’s collection of art, and others include John Baldessari’s “Commissioned Painting: A Painting by Edgar Transue,” purchased by Sender in 2001. Prince’s “Untitled (Cowboy),” which Sender also acquired in 2001. Both paintings are valued at between $1 million and $1.5 million.
Sender’s investment and love for collectible artwork hasn’t dwindled, he is broadening his interests and feels a collection of art the size he now has should be viewed and enjoyed, and not stored out of sight.
If the Senders are able to complete their plans to create a “pop-up exhibition” house in Miami using one of their vacant properties they will be able to entertain friends and share the enjoyment of their collections with close friends while enjoying the “pop-up exhibition” any time they choose without having to store such beautiful art.
Possibly they will also consider exhibiting their 1973 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible and other collectible cars in the garages connected to the exhibit house in Miami?
The art world awaits the next move of Adam Sender in his future plans for exhibition or auction.
