Michael McCarthy will present an entertaining and enlightening discussion as he touches upon the importance of specific bequests of art to family, friends, and charitable institutions. He will provide insight into the charitable transfers that he handled with Isamu Noguchi and Donald Judd; the difficulties with the life estate in her art collection that Gertrude Stein provided for Alice B. Toklas; issues of establishing an historic house museum as he did as the draftsman of the will of Doris Duke; and he’ll raise some cautionary tales of the bequests of art under the wills of Brooke Astor and Huguette Clark. Whatever your plans for your art collection, this conversation should be an interesting one.
Mr. McCarthy has represented numerous collectors and artists while he practiced as an estate planning lawyer. He is Managing Director, Office of Chief Fiduciary, U.S. Trust.
