ARTinvestment.RU   07 августа 2020

The Richardson collection, including works by Picasso, P. Chelishchev, Braque, Francis bacon, L. Freud, E. Warhol will be sold at Sotheby's and Stair Galleries

In September 2020 at the auction houses Sotheby's and Stair Galleries can compete for items from the collection of the renowned expert on the art of the XX century and author of one of the most authoritative biographies of Pablo Picasso John Richardson. In addition to the friendship with many outstanding authors of the twentieth century, Richardson was also an avid collector. The uniqueness of his collection is the fact that often the works of art came to him as gifts from friends.

thus, among the objects of his collection can be seen its own oil portrait brushes Lucian Freud, the work of Warhol and Picasso with inscriptions and unique collection of graphics of Paul Chelishchev, with whom Richardson talked a lot and was friendly. On first acquaintance with the collection of Richardson Benjamin Doller, head of the U.S. office of Sotheby's says: "I could barely focus on the pictures [sitting there] because the loft was so much work. I just wanted to look at everything... It was one of those interiors that, as I like to say, can only create the English... it is their innate style."

the Interior of Richardson was so much fascinated of the Doller, that the original, pre-show planning, he wanted to create an exact copy in the exhibition halls of the auction house. But then, given the eclectic and different price ranges of items in the collection, these plans were abandoned. In the end, the collection of Richardson was divided between the two auction houses. On 16 and 17 September 2020 auction house Stair Galleries will hold an auction of John Richardson: A Scholar Collects ("John Richardson: a collection of the researcher"), which will include the interior and furniture, and works of art of the middle and affordable price range from the collection of the collector.

Paintings and drawings, including works by Picasso, P. Chelishchev, Braque, Francis bacon, L. Freud, E. Warhol and other artists of the first row, will be implemented by the auction house Sotheby's in several separate auction in September of this year. According to the auction house, the date of sales of individual lots is to be determined, but we know that, for example, the work of Andy Warhol will be sold separately online-продажи, and one of the most interesting works of the collection, a portrait of Richardson painted by Freud, will be shown on the pre-sale exhibition, but will not be sold: according to the will of the collector, he will go to the National portrait gallery in London.
