Learn about JULIUS COHEN artist,their past and upcoming works offered at auction at Christie's

Born into a jewellery-based family, Julius Cohen began his career in 1929 in his uncle's company, Oscar Heyman & Bros., learning the rudiments of the trade for thirteen years. He drew inspiration from the craftsmen at Oscar Heyman's, especially Adolph Hentschel, a designer from Germany who acted as his mentor. In 1942, he joined Harry Winston, serving in much the same capacity as he had with his uncle's firm. In 1955, he left Winston, opening a salon bearing his own name at 17 East Fifty-third Street in New York. In 1974, Cohen moved to 699 Madison Avenue where the business currently maintains both salon and workshop. Upon Cohen's death in July of 1995 his son-in-law, Leslie Steinweiss, who joined the firm in 1976, took over the business.
