SALE NOTES:
Sands of Time Ancient Art is proud to assist the American University Museum, Washington DC, with the deaccession of the Senator William A. Clark collection of ancient Greek and Roman art. This exciting collection is being sold for the benefit of the American University Museum. As AUM still maintains extensive holdings from the original Clark donation, proceeds from the sale will support the direct costs of exhibiting, maintaining, preserving, and storing items in the Corcoran Legacy Collection.

While deaccession funding would usually be used to acquire works consistent with museum policy, the Corcoran museum trustees and the American University Museum directors agree that the deaccession and sale of these antiquities will keep Senator Clark’s generous legacy alive. In keeping with Association of Art Museum Directors (AAMD) guidelines, Sands of Time Ancient Art exclusively invited American museums to reserve and acquire objects from the Clark collection in 2021. With those selections now finalized, we now offer the balance of the collection for public sale.

SENATOR WILLIAM A. CLARK COLLECTION OF ANCIENT ART:
In 1925, American politician and entrepreneur Senator William A. Clark (1839 - 1925) bequeathed a major portion of his large and varied collection to the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington DC. Clark purchased his antiquities collection of Greek and Roman Art from the French painter Raphael Collin. Collin assembled the collection between 1890 and 1910 with the assistance of experts from the Louvre, particularly Edmond Pottier, curator in the department of Eastern antiquities at the Musee du Louvre from 1908 to 1925. This collection draws from the art of many ancient Greek cultures, including mainland Greece, Cyprus, and Greek colonies established around the Mediterranean basin, especially Southern Italy and Anatolia. The collection remained with the Corcoran until their closure in 2014 when the trustees gifted the Clark antiquities to the American University Museum, Washington DC. See: TheClarkCollection.org for full details.
