David Bowie, who died in January, was passionate about fine art and built up a large and eclectic collection during his lifetime. In November, Sotheby’s in London will hold a three-part sale in which nearly 400 artworks from Bowie’s private collection will be sold off. The heart of the sale will be 200 works of modern and contemporary British art by the likes of Henry Moore, Frank Auerbach and Damien Hirst. Bowie’s own artwork will also be up for grabs. Fans and potential buyers will be able to view the collection from November 1–10 at Sotheby’s New Bond Street galleries prior to the sale, with the auctions taking place on November 10-11. More information is available here, and, in the meantime, here’s a small selection of the art that will be going under the hammer…
