More art for sale from the estate of the late businessman Edwin Cox
Art and antiques from the estate of the late Dallas businessman Edwin L. Cox will be sold through a Chicago auction house in the coming months.
Cox, who died in 2020 at the age of 99, was an oilman and investor who became one of North Texas’ most prominent business leaders. Southern Methodist University’s business school is named after the businessman who was a benefactor of the college.
Along with his commercial success, Cox was recognized for his family collections of art, antiques and decorative items. Last year, Christie’s donated Cox’s art collection in a $ 332 million sale.
Now Hindman Auctions is auctioning more Cox paintings and decorative arts.
“Cox has left a distinct mark through his consummate collection,” said Corbin Horn of Hindman in a statement. “We are delighted to be able to bring Cox’s decorative arts, as compelling as his collection of Impressionist art, to multiple auction categories over the coming months.
Works of art and collectibles will be included in sales on January 13 and 14, early February and late March.
“The highlights of the Cox Estate in Hindman include works of art by Peter Ellenshaw and Constantine Kluge, as well as Chinese famille verte porcelain, exquisite rugs and a variety of European decorative arts,” according to the House of auction.
In November, Christie’s sold paintings, including works by Monet, Cézanne and van Gogh. The sale drew a global audience of bidders from 27 countries.
Cox’s iconic mansion in Highland Park – where most of the sale’s items were on display – was sold last year to Dallas banker and investor Andy Beal. The more than 100-year-old home sits on 7 acres along Turtle Creek, just south of the Dallas Country Club.
