Christie’s is offering The Collection of A. Jerrold Perenchio in a two-part landmark online sale during September.

All net proceeds will benefit the Perenchio Foundation, whose principal mission is to support visual and performing arts programs and institutions located in Los Angeles County.

The sales feature European furniture and ceramics, prints, old master drawings, sculpture, Chinese ceramics and works of art, silver, carpets, and memorabilia, which are curated across two themed online sales entitled: Chartwell: An Henri Samuel Commission (1-16 September) and A California Life (1-17 September).
