Lambertville, NJ - Rago will offer for sale property from the Estate of Hellen and Joe Darion on Saturday April 14, 2019.

Though best known as the lyricist behind the Tony Award winning musical “Man of La Mancha”, Joe Darion and his wife, professional dancer Hellen Darion, were also avid collectors of Indian and Persian manuscripts, Asian decorative objects and fine art, much of which they gathered during their many adventures across South Asia. Notable examples in the Darion’s collection have been sourced by museums for exhibition and scholars for dissertations. Rago Auctions is pleased to offer bidders the opportunity to purchase art and antiquities from their personal collection, all fresh to market, in a 115 lot auction dedicated to the adventuring spirit of this inspired couple.
