Guests gathered around the scintillating outdoor pool for cocktails while freely moving through the home to view Mr. Gagosian’s private art collection. They then moved to the garden for a three-course, sit-down dinner. Fitting in perfectly with the surroundings, beautiful Vacheron Constantin timepieces were on display for the distinguished guests who were clearly drawn to the magnificent pieces from the brand’s Métier’s d’Art Collection, La Symbolique des Laques Maki-e Collection and the Kalla Haute Couture À Pampilles and Lady Kalla Flame.

It was a fantastic and elegant affair which raised approximately $200,000 in support of the mission of the American Friends of the Louvre, including its efforts to promote the Louvre Museum’s contemporary art programs.
