Out with the old, in with the new — if that’s the mantra you’re using for 2020, then this one’s for you. Some of Marc Jacobs‘ most prized possessions (his art) will soon go under the gavel and you’ll have a chance to revamp your homes to look like Marc Jacobs’ West Village apartment. Well, sort of.
Courtesy of Sotheby’s, the designer’s collection of artworks will be available to bidders as he’s recently purchased a home (designed by Frank Lloyd-Wright) in Rye, New York. Jacobs told his friend and Sotheby’s chairman Amy Cappellazzo in an online interview, “I’m not Marie Kondo. I didn’t decide everything must go. I thought about my role as an art collector…and I just felt it’s time to give myself this window to start again.”
You’ll be able to bid on over 150 pieces next month, including works by Ed Ruscha, John Currin, Urs Fischer, Richard Prince and Andy Warhol. There will also be work from Francis Picabia, François-Xavier Lalanne, Alberto and Diego Giacometti, Jean-Michel Frank, Eugène Printz, Jean Dunand, Paul Dupré-Lafon and Maurice Marinot, among others, according to WWD.
Interested? The Jacobs-approved art will be on sale at Sotheby’s Impressionist & Modern Art Day sale on November 13, Contemporary Art Evening auction on November 14, Contemporary Art Day Auction on November 15 and Fine Jewels on December 9, 2019.
