Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 19 settembre 2019

London – The Royal House of Savoy will be offered for auction on 15 October, the latest chapter in Christie’s long held tradition of hosting Royal collection sales. This follows the highly successful auctions from The Collection of S.A.R. La Principessa Reale Maria Beatrice di Savoia in 2005 and S.A.R. La Principessa Reale Maria Gabriella di Savoia in 2007; Christie’s also offered the collections of H.R.H. The Princess Margaret in 2006 and the Kings of Greece in 2007. Comprising approximately 150 lots, this eclectic Royal collection presents a wealth of opportunities for collectors spanning some twenty-four centuries of artistic achievement: from Daunian pottery, circa 4th-6th century B.C., 16th century family portraits and rare manuscripts, to Chinese porcelain, cars and post-war works by artists such as Lichtenstein and Pomodoro, which were set against the striking architectural form and interior of a 1970s lake-side house. The Royal House of Savoy is expected to realise in excess of £1 million. Adrian Hume-Sayer, Director, Head of Sale, Private Collections, Christie’s London: “It is a great honour to have been entrusted with this fascinating Royal collection, The Royal House of Savoy. The breadth of this collection is astonishing. Ancient Daunian pottery sits alongside family paintings boldly juxtaposed with Lichtenstein prints and Pomodoro sculpture. This sale gives a unique glimpse of Royal collecting in our own time.”
