The Maximilian Schell Estate for Christie’s

Illuminations were commissioned to tell the story of Schell's art collection which went on sale in Amsterdam on November 2014.

Maximilian Schell was one of the most successful non-English speaking actors in the history of American cinema. He will perhaps be best remembered for his Oscar-winning performance in Stanley Kramer’s Judgment at Nuremberg (1961). However, his more overlooked yet equally lasting legacy lies in his assemblage of an unparalleled collection of Post-War and Contemporary art.
