Why We Love This

In February 2009, 733 pieces from Pierre Bergé’s and Yves Saint Laurent’s art collection--one of the world’s largest private collections--were auctioned off in a record-breaking sale. Modern paintings, baroque bronzes, antique silverware, statues, cameos, and minerals made up the diverse collection that furnished the pair’s two luxurious residences in Paris, and it included major works by Picasso, Brancusi, Matisse, and Mondrian, in addition to furniture by Eileen Gray and Jean Dunand. The five-volume catalog published by Christie’s for the event sold out before the end of the auction, leaving collectors and art connoisseurs the world over empty-handed. This new book features 100 of the most important pieces from the collection with detailed commentary by Christie’s experts. An introduction by Christie’s vice president François de Ricqlès revisits the intense three-day auction at the Grand Palais. An appendix includes images of the works sold, accompanied by their estimated values and final auction prices.
