George Michael Collection, Christie’s, March 2019
In March Christie’s hosted The George Michael Collection: a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for collectors, art lovers and legions of fans to see his private collection, and bid on works across a live and online auction. Philanthropic work was hugely important for George Michael during his lifetime and it was his wish that this work would continue after his passing.
5 works bought directly from Adam Ball by George Michael were auctioned. For more info please see here.
