Decorative Arts & Fine Art from Cox Estate to Be Offered Across Four Auctions From January to March

Hindman is pleased to offer property from the Estate of Edwin L. Cox (Dallas, Texas), a renowned philanthropist and businessman. Not only was Cox a prominent figure in Texas civic life and a distinguished entrepreneur in the American energy industry, he also was a fervent benefactor of major cultural institutions who built an extraordinary collection of French Impressionist masterpieces. More than 20 masterpieces from Cox’s personal collection set four world auction records in Christie’s May 2021 sale, ‘The Cox Collection: The Story of Impressionism.’  

“Hindman is known for marketing single-owner collections in a way that tells the entire story of a person’s collecting legacy,” said Hindman Vice President and Senior Specialist of European Furniture and Decorative Arts Corbin Horn. “Cox left a distinct mark through his consummate collection. We are pleased to be able to offer Cox’s decorative arts, which are as intriguing as his collection of Impressionist art, across several sales categories during the next few months.”
