David Bowie’s private art collection is up for sale featuring timeless pieces and modern masters

Bowie studied art and design at technical college and his gloriously colourful career is as much a testament to his appreciation art as music and fashion. He once admitted to buying art ‘obsessively and addictively,’ yet this collection has never publically come to light before.

Bowie/Collector is on show at Sotherby’s in London until 9 August then travels to Los Angeles, New York and Hong Kong. It returns to London for the three-part auction on 10-11 November, which is expected to raise more than £10million.

The Bowie/Collector highlights preview exhibition will run until 9 August at Sotherby’s, 1-2 George Street, London, W1S 2FE
