Christie's Announces Sale of Yves Saint Laurent's Art Collection
PARIS—Christie's International has announced that it will sell the art collection of Yves Saint Laurent, who died last month, and his former business partner, Pierre Berge, reports Bloomberg. The collection, which includes works by Picasso, Warhol, Mondrian, Matisse and Goya, is believed to be worth up to £300 million ($599 million). While Christie's has yet to announce the specific date and contents of the sale, the house did say it will be held in Paris in February 2009 in association with Berge's auction house, Pierre Berge and Associates.
