Spotlight | Collection François Meyer

Paris | 26 September 2023

François Meyer (1953 – 2022) was a lifelong collector, whose all-encompassing passion and curiosity for art led to him assembling an eclectic collection – whilst at the same time documenting the artists behind it. François Meyer’s collecting journey was inextricably linked with his own creativity, as he photographed some of the best-known and best-loved artists of his time, including Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Sonia Delaunay, Helen Frankenthaler, Wilfredo Lam, Sam Francis, Shirin Neshat, Fernando Botero and David Hockney, to name a few. This September, Sotheby’s Paris will hold a dedicated auction of François Meyer’s personal collection, offering artworks from the breadth of his prolific passions. Prior to the sale, which is titled Collection François Meyer: A Colorful Passion, the 160 works will be exhibited to the public in Sotheby’s Paris galleries from 22 – 25 September.
