An art dealer with clients including billionaires Leon Black and Ronald Lauder is selling 10 works from his private collection that could set individual auction records for some of the masters who created them.

Richard L. Feigen, 88, who sold paintings to moguls and museums over six decades, is offering the works through Christie’s to raise money for retirement, he said in an interview. They span four centuries and include a two-sided John Constable landscape and “Saint Sixtus,” a rare, gold-ground Fra Angelico.
