A selection of stunning Kate Moss pictures spanning her entire career is being auctioned at Christies in September – see a sneak peek here
Kate Moss’s most famous photo shoots are being auctioned off at Christie’s in September. Kate Moss: The Collection is being curated by collector Gert Elfering and celebrates the supermodel’s incredible modelling career.
Kate‘s famous Aladdin Sane shot, taken in 2003, is expected to reach £25,000-£35,000, while an image of her wearing an armour of bronze glitter has been valued at £20,000-£30,000. The collection also includes a cover from French Vogue, Kate wearing a masked veil in Marrakech, and various arty black and white shots from the model’s heyday. We LOVE.
The artists featured include Allen Jones, Annie Liebovitz, Mary McCartney, Craig McDean, Irving Penn, Mario Sorrenti, Sam Taylor-Wood, Juergen Teller, Mario Testino, Ellen von Unwerth, and Albert Watson.
Gert says of the auction: ‘I am pleased to be working with Christie’s once again, on this occasion to celebrate the living icon Kate Moss. She is the subject and inspiration for this collection, but the importance of the present works is in her collaboration with the internationally renowned artists who created them. 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.’
He adds: ‘Kate is the ultimate modern muse and we will be seeing her images in major museums and private collections for years to come. She has altered perceptions for women across the globe, encouraging them towards greater individuality and expressive freedom. There is so much you can learn from Kate – how you should always remain true to yourself, develop your own style, and emphasise your individuality.’
The images will go on display from Saturday 21 September and the collection will be auctioned off on Wednesday 25 September.
