Sotheby’s to exhibit Bowie’s art collection ahead of sale


Sotheby’s is to sell more than 200 pieces from David Bowie’s extensive art collection, including works by Damien Hirst and Jean-Michel Basquiat.

The musician, who died in January, was an avid collector and served on the editorial board of Modern Painters magazine.

The sale — which will be preceded by a public exhibition — includes works by British artists Henry Moore, Graham Sutherland and Frank Auerbach, as well as pieces by African and Italian artists.

The top lot is Basquiat’s painting “Air Power,” valued at between 2.5 million pounds ($3.3 million) and 3.5 million pounds ($4.6 million).

The “Bowie/Collector” exhibition is at Sotheby’s London showrooms Nov. 1-10, following smaller preview shows in London, Los Angeles, New York and Hong Kong starting Wednesday. The sale will be held Nov. 10-11.
