David Bowie Collection at Sotheby's London

2.11.16

 
Last night saw the opening party for David Bowie's personal art collection that is now on view at Sotheby's London prior to the Auction  which will take place on November 10th and 11th.
 
The collection is incredible : eclectic and thought provoking it encompasses more than 350 artworks ranging from post-war British to German Expressionism and surrealist pieces.

The most valuable piece of the collection is a very rare Basquiat piece called "Air Power" which is expected to fetch around £3.5 m. Bowie bought this piece after playing the role of Andy Warhol in the 1996 film Basquiat.

The art collection was fuelled by Bowie's active and  passionate involvement in the art industry throughout his career - as an artist himself, as a writer and as a patron and collector.

This is a great opportunity to also see works by lesser known Modern British Artists mixed in with internationally renowned contemporary masters. Not to miss for music, art and design lovers !!
