The Shahmoon collection is a unique mix of objects from the East and West. While it includes a large selection of Chinese furniture, ceramics, paintings on silk and textiles, it also comprises European and American furniture, silver, paintings, bronzes and other works of art.    

Solomon E. Shahmoon emigrated to Shanghai from Baghdad in 1911, and he became a renowned property developer and financier during the peak of the early 20th century building boom in Shanghai and this city's development as the major commercial center in Asia.  Mr. Shahmoon established Messrs SE Shamoon (alternatively spelled Shahmoon), engaging in import/ export and other business ventures. His success was capped by the construction in 1927 of the eight-story Shahmoon Building dominating the Bund and sited above their Art Deco masterpiece, The Capitol Theater. The Shahmoon Building, designed by Hungarian immigrant and pre-eminent architect C.H. Gonda, rose majestically over the staid, traditional banking and insurance buildings on the Bund. Striking elegant apartments and sleek business offices occupied the upper floors above the Capitol Theater, the building also boasted steel reinforcement, heating and cooling, and the latest in film technology. The building remains in the heart of Shanghai's vibrant business and nightlife community, at the corner of Huqui (Museum) and Suzhou (Soochow) roads.

In 1928 Mr. Shahmoon made Paris his residence, visiting Shanghai periodically to invest in property. In 1938 he re-visited Baghdad where he met and married Hannah, and the couple settled in Paris where their first daughter was born. The Shahmoons collected art, objects, carpets and furniture, and at the end of 1939, left Paris ahead of the Nazis for New York, where they settled permanently, first in Manhattan and then in New Rochelle.  Much of their collection from both Shanghai and Paris was eventually reunited with them in New Rochelle, and where they raised their four daughters in their large, Spanish-style stucco home.

Robert Gottlieb had a long and distinguished career as an editor and writer, having served as the head of Alfred A. Knopf, the editor in chief of Simon and Schuster, and the editor of The New Yorker. As an editor he worked with many notable authors, including Toni Morrison, John Le Carré, Bruno Bettelheim, Katharine Graham, Doris Lessing, Bill Clinton, Nora Ephron, Bill Gates, and Joseph Heller—whose debut novel, Catch 22, helped establish Gottlieb’s reputation as a keen discerner of literary talent. In recent decades, he wrote extensively for The New York Review of Books, The New Yorker, The New York Times Book Review, and The New York Observer, where he was the dance critic for many years. His books include A Certain Style: The Art of the Plastic Handbag, 1949-59; Sarah: The Life of Sarah Bernhardt; George Balanchine: Ballet Maker; Lives and Letters; Great Expectations: The Sons and Daughters of Charles Dickens; Near-Death Experiences...and Others; Garbo; and the memoir Avid Reader. He also edited the anthologies Reading Jazz, Reading Dance, and, with Robert Kimball, Reading Lyrics. In 2015, he received the annual Award for Distinguished Service to the Arts from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. In 2022, a feature documentary, Turn Every Page, was released about Gottlieb’s collaborations with author Robert Caro. In his private life, Gottlieb was an avid collector who delighted in accumulating a variety of objects, including lucite handbags from the 1950s, postcards, Art Deco and early 20th Century decorative arts and, of course, his primary love, books.
