David Bowie's Private Art Collection to Be Unveiled for the First Time Then AuctionedWhat does Ziggy Stardust have in his treasure chest?
David Bowie was a man known for many things, but one thing the world didn’t know about him was his art collection which was kept almost entirely hidden from public view. The late singer’s quietly collected artworks are to go on display for the world before being auctioned at Sotheby’s in November. Starting from next week, the spectacular art collection will be traveling to London, Los Angeles, New York and Hong Kong, giving fans a chance to see some of the works that inspired Bowie. The collection will feature approximately 400 items and is expected to sell for over $13 million USD. Make sure to check out the items in person if you are lucky enough to be near one of those cites (dates below).
