  • Kate Moss photographs and artworks were auctioned at Christie's in London and netted over £1.6 million in sales

    Kate Moss photographs and artworks were auctioned at Christie’s in London and netted over £1.6 million in sales.

    The supermodel’s most iconic shoots, as well as paintings and sculptures based on the living muse were auctioned off at Christie’s this week. Compiled from the personal collection of gallery owner Gert Elfering, the auction included works by the likes of Mario Sorrenti, Allen Jones, Nick Knight, Craig McDean, Mario Testino and other bold-faced names in the art and fashion spheres.

    Allen Jones‘ sculpture of Kate Moss was the highest-grossing item in the sale – the glass-reinforced composite piece sold for £133,875 – and the artist’s painting of Mossy, entitled ‘Kate in red,’ was the second-best earner, netting £121,875.

    Other big sellers from the 48-lot collection included Chris Levine‘s ‘She’s Light,’ which features a naked Kate Moss in a light box and which garnered £115,875, a world record for the artist, while Craig McDean‘s ‘God Save the Queen’ photograph sold for £49,875, the most one of the photographer’s works has ever gone for at auction.

    Total sales at the auction were £1,665,500.

    As for the rest of us, we’ll have to settle for our old pasttime of tearing out Kate Moss pics from magazines and plastering them on our walls…
