The Brewster Collection

Freeman’s is pleased to offer an exceptional single owner auction of property from the Estate of Andre and Nancy Brewster of Maryland, both respected activists and philanthropists on December 15. Married in 1945 and described as an “inseparable couple” who shared many common interests, they passed away earlier this year—Andre at age ninety in February and Nancy a week later on her ninety-first birthday. Mr. and Mrs. Brewster worked together on many fronts, including sharing a goal to preserve natural wild lands. Andre was a founder and board member of Baltimore County’s Land Preservation Trust, and Nancy was an active volunteer and benefactor of the Ladew Topiary Gardens in Monkton, Maryland. Along with their shared passion for social service, land preservation, and golf, the couple also shared a keen interest in fine art. They created a superb collection of important works by respected European and American artists, a legacy which can now continue to enrich the lives of others and which we are proud to continue.
