This December Sotheby’s will offer Property from the Collection of Dodie Rosekrans. A celebrated philanthropist, style icon and patron of both fine and decorative arts, Dodie Rosekrans was known internationally both for her sense of adventure and unfailingly generous spirit. A trailblazer and trendsetter in fashion, the arts and society, she made a name for herself in each of the cities in which she lived with her late husband John Rosekrans: San Francisco – where she was born to Michael Naify, founder of the movie chain that became United Artists – Paris and Venice. Mr and Mrs Rosekrans’s charitable contributions were numerous, highlighted by their efforts to support the museums of San Francisco and Paris, the latter of which earned Mrs Rosekrans France’s Légion d’Honneur.
