This November, Sothebys Auction House will be showing 400 pieces from David Bowies personal art collection. First, the artwork will go on a world tour, making appearances in Los Angeles, New York City and Hong Kong. A musician and actor, Bowie took his passion for art seriously, collecting art and connecting with the artists he was buying from.
Included in Bowies collection is work by famous 20th Century artists such as Frank Auerbach, Damien Hirst, Henry Moore, and Graham Sutherland. The value of the collection is estimated to be over $13 million. This is truly a one-of-a-kind collection and worth checking out.
Some of the works included in the collection include:
Damien Hirst, Beautiful, shattering, slashing, violent, pinky, hacking, sphincter painting, 1995.
Jean-Michel Basquiat, Air Power, 1984.
Harold Gilman, Interior (Mrs Mounter), 1917.
