Whitehead's Art Collection Set for Auction

John Whitehead, the late Wall Street banker who led Goldman Sachs Group Inc.’s expansion overseas, was also an avid art collector who owned works by Claude Monet and Amedeo Modigliani.

Christie’s said Monday that 90 works from Whitehead’s collection are expected to fetch more than $40 million at sales on May 4-5. Christie’s and Sotheby’s are starting to announce their top consignments for the semi-annual auctions of modern, Impressionist, postwar and contemporary art in New York.
