One Careful Owner

 

Well-known personalities, be they artists, designers or society figures, can be intensely private, but when their collections or the contents of their homes are put up for sale we can see inside their homes and find clues as to their tastes and interests. If we are lucky we can hope to own a piece from their collection. Once the contents have been dispersed what remains is the auction catalogue, a record of an individual’s taste and discernment.

In this short catalogue we have brought together 16 auction catalogues of single-owner collections.
