Event Details

In what is set to be one of the most hotly-anticipated highlights of the 2018 auction calendar, Sotheby’s and Pierre Bergé & Associés will later this year offer for sale the extraordinary contents of the various homes of one of the most successful and cultured businessmen and aesthetes of our times. Proceeds will benefit foundations close to Bergé’s heart: Fondation Pierre Bergé - Yves Saint Laurent & Fondation Jardin Majorelle. An aesthete and astute businessman, with a powerful presence in politics and the media, Pierre Bergé (1930-2017) was also a renowned philanthropist, lover of literature and one of the most important collectors of his time. A man of the arts, he amassed, over more than fifty years, an eclectic collection encompassing everything from Antiquity to Modern art, including 16th and 17th-century vanitas, Orientalist paintings and antique furniture in addition to Islamic, African and Asian art.
