The Objects with the Most Intriguing Provenance at TEFAF Maastricht
From a Hellenistic sculpture owned by Andy Warhol to an astronomy book from Mary, Queen of Scots, these incredible works of art boast illustrious histories.
In the world of collecting, objects that once belonged to someone famous are often infinitely more appealing. Take for example the blockbuster auctions of the estates of Mario Buatta, Elizabeth Taylor, and Hubert de Givenchy. Art and design aficionados sent prices soaring for paintings, jewels, or even a porcelain dinner set once held in the private cache of these highly regarded aesthetes.
