Notes: Douglas Cooper, seventy-three, died in London in 1984, leaving behind the world's greatest private collection of Cubist art. He began buying art after receiving an inheritance in 1933. Heir to his collection was William McCarty-Cooper, his adopted son and lover, who partially dismantled his collection. McCarty-Cooper died at age fifty-three in June 1991 in Beverly Hills, California. His estate has a value estimated at between twenty and thirty million dollars and will be sold at an auction, which will include the art remaining from Cooper's collection and that collected by McCarty. His interests included African art, and he bequeathed part of his collection to the National Museum of African Art and to UCLA's Fowler Museum of Cultural History.
The auction was held May 1992.
