What is sure to be one of the blockbuster auctions in recent years is coming this summer. This June, in Paris, Christie’s will feature the collection of Hubert de Givenchy, including more than 1,200 lots of fine and decorative arts from two of his legendary homes. French and European furniture and art, from Old Masters to contemporary, will be offered from the Hôtel d’Orrouer in Paris, below,
and the Château du Jonchet in the Loire Valley.
As Christie’s explained, “The timing of the announcement of the sale coincides with the 70th anniversary of the first haute couture collection Hubert de Givenchy presented in Paris on 2nd of February 1952, which was a resounding international success.” Below a preview of the offerings from the Chateau du Jonchet.
Highlights from the collection will be traveling around to key Christie’s locations including Palm Beach, New York and Hong Kong before returning to Paris for the preview beginning on June 8. I will have much more to share as the sale approaches.
