Stanley Seeger was one of the greatest collectors of his generation. Stanley and his dear partner Christopher Cone derived enormous pleasure from acquiring beautiful works of art, whether paintings, drawings, prints or objects - whatever caught their eye - from masterpieces by Picasso, Miro, Bacon, and Jasper Johns to E. H. Shephard's Winnie the Pooh illustrations, cookery books, & Gauguin prints. The consistent elements throughout were Stanley's sure sense of style, his taste, and often his sense of fun. Those qualities are what come through in this catalogue, Stanley's last sale. It is a metaphor for the glorious diffuseness of Stanley's imagination, a magnificent compendium of objects, furnishings, and pictures that adorned the various houses, flats (and boats) in which Chris and Stanley lived and laughed and drank together, from the grandeur of Sutton Place to the splendid 218 foot motor yacht. We are all of us the poorer for the loss of Stanley, but richer for the wonderful legacy of his eye, that discerning and eclectic eye which, with Christopher's help, did indeed relish and perfect one thousand ways of seeing.
