Marc Jacobs: Between Collections

14-15 November | New York

Marc Jacobs is moving. After living and collecting in an impeccably designed townhouse on Greenwich Village’s Bethune street for over a decade, the fashion icon has found a new canvas in the Frank Lloyd-designed Max Hoffman House of Rye, New York. This November, Sotheby’s is honored to offer an exceptional selection of works from the Collection of Marc Jacobs in our Contemporary Art Evening and Day sales. As he prepares to relocate, the legendary designer joined Sotheby’s Chairman Amy Cappellazzo to explore his eclectic art collection and unique approach to curation. Jacobs has spent the past two decades building an extensive collection of contemporary art with a particular focus on figuration, including remarkable examples from artists like Mike Kelley, John Currin and Urs Fischer. Although initially intimidated with the New York art world, Jacobs developed personal relationships with many of the artists he collected, including Elizabeth Peyton and Karen Kilimnik.
