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.
