The must-see photography sale of the autumn is sure to be Kate Moss - The Collection - Curated by Gert Elfering, a selection of works celebrating the renowned supermodel as a great modern muse. This auction will provide bidders with the opportunity to acquire unique or limited edition works portraying a celebrated icon of fashion and style. The predominantly large-scale pieces include famous shots alongside less well known works by the likes of Allen Jones, Annie Liebovitz, Mary McCartney, Irving Penn, Mario Sorrenti, Sam Taylor-Wood, Juergen Teller and Mario Testino. These stunning photographs are complemented by a specially commissioned painting and sculpture by Allen Jones, a collage by Sir Peter Blake, a tapestry by Chuck Close, and a sculpture of Kate Moss as a naked angel in 18ct gold by Nick Knight.
‘As I saw the collection taking shape, I was delighted by the variety and the consistent power of the works, and I have already enjoyed seeing the positive reaction in the faces of others when they first see them. Kate is the ultimate modern muse and we will be seeing her images in major museums and private collections for years to come.’ Gert Elfering, Collector
A public exhibition of the works will take place 21st – 24th September, with the auction itself scheduled for 25th September. John Jones is delighted to have been selected to create bespoke framing solutions to complement each individual print in both wooden and welded aluminium designs. Our team has over forty years of experience in framing photography to provide long-term protection to the artwork.
