Just wanted to give a little provenance to potential buyers. This was purchased out of local estate of Douglas MacCarthy. 

Doug MacCarthy was an architect and builder until he went blind in his early 30s. He switched careers and became a banker before becoming a financial adviser.

He made lots of money and knew how to raise more. He became a patron and fundraiser for the arts in St. Louis. He was one of the founders of what is now the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis.

He lived on a 2-acre estate in Ladue surrounded by a garden that's been called one of the most beautiful in America. The two homes on his estate are filled with a fabulous collection of artworks, none of which he could see
