David Bowie’S Private Art Collection, Worth £10 Million, To Go On Display In London
The public will have a chance to view David Bowie’s £10 million personal art collection as it goes on tour in London, Hong Kong and New York before it is auctioned off on November 10th and 11th at Sotheby’s, New Bond Street, London. The collection includes over 300 pieces of art, largely from 20th century British artists including the likes of Damien Hirst, Frank Auerbach, Henry Moore and Graham Sutherland. The Ziggy Stardust singer has said art was the only thing he has ever wanted. Alongside the art, over 120 pieces of Bowie’s 20th century sculpture and furniture are also going on show before being auctioned off in November.
Bowie, who was very much an active member of the art scenes in Berlin, New York and London, was also on the editorial board of Modern Painters magazine in 1994, where he interviewed the likes of Tracy Emin and Jeff Koons.
The exhibition will run 1-10th November 2016, Sotheby's New Bond Street, free of charge.
