Rachel Lambert ("Bunny") Mellon was more than a mere society figure: she was a passionate collector, self-taught horticulturalist, and a highly private individual. From Nov. 21 to 23, Sotheby's presents Property from the Collection of Mrs. Paul Mellon, an interiors sale featuring furnishings, tabletop, fine art, and more from Oak Spring Farms, the Mellons' Virginia estate. Here, a 1935 portrait of Mellon that hangs in the Oak Spring Garden Library.
