The Bruce Museum’s Bruce Circle Dinner
Greenwich, CT


Greenwich Connecticut’s Bruce Museum’s highest member donor group, The Robert Bruce Circle is co-chaired by Tamara
Holliday and art collector Michel Cox Witmer. The Bruce Circle along with The Directors of Sotheby’s Impressionist, Modern
and Contemporary Art Departments, hosted an evening of cocktails, dinner and a private viewing of Sotheby’s sale of
Impressionist and Modern Art.
The main attraction were the 76 works of art on display. The lots were auctioned off a few days later for $270 million. The highlights
included paintings by Schiele, Pissarro, Signac, Monet, Picasso, Chagall, Ernst and Dali. There was Vincent van Gogh’s
“The Fields,” about which, David Norman (Sotheby’s Executive Vice President, Co-Chairman, Impressionist and Modern Art
Worldwide) explained: “This was his last painting, completed in 1890, 2 weeks before he shot himself in the chest in that very
wheat field. Although mortally wounded, Vincent got back to his room. His landlady called his brother Theo who came down
from Paris. The painting hung over the artist’s bed. The brothers sat in the room for a day and a half before Vincent expired.”
Norman also told a story about Paul Gauguin’s “Te Poipoi,” which was hung across the room. “Painted in 1892, it was one of the
first paintings Gaugin did in Tahiti. It captures the morning rituals of the women who are wearing sarongs with fabrics woven in
Europe - a mixture of European and Tahitian symbols. Gauguin sold it in Paris in 1895 to raise more money for supplies before
he returned to Tahiti. “”Te Poipoi” sold for $39,241,000 to
Joseph Lau of Hong Kong).
The 99 year old Greenwich museum’s CEO Peter Sutton, talked about the level of art appreciation in that fair city: “One of the
remarkable resources of Greenwich and its environs is the quality and depth of its private art collections, which has inspired our
museum’s current exhibition: “Contemporary and Cutting Edge: Pleasures of Collecting Part III.” A delicious 3 course meal
followed and then more time to peruse the paintings on display. For more information please visit:
