Marc Jacobs is going to auction his art collection

Estimated reading time: < 1 minute

Designer Marc Jacobs – responsible until a few years ago not only for his own authorial brand, but also for the creative direction of Louis Vuitton – has decided to sell his entire art collection. Jacobs, who was friends with Jean-Michel Basquiat and Francesco Clemente in the 1980s, started collecting in the early 2000s, and his collection includes other names such as John Currin, Elizabeth Peyton and Ed Ruscha. The sale was motivated by a change of house, as the designer will leave the apartment where the works were in New York and move to a house designed by the famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright. With that, he felt the need to “start over”. Sotheby's will be responsible for auctioning the works at different events of modern and contemporary art in the house, between November 13th and December 9th.
