American fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger is set to sell five pieces of art from his own personal collection of artwork. Ranging from one-of-a-kind works by Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, Damien Hirst and Jean Dubuffet; Hilfiger has been an avid art collector over the last three decades. ‘I like to buy and sell all the time,’ Hilfiger said. ‘I’m very interested in knowing who’s who, and what something is worth, and whether or not it would have a resale value … I never want to buy something and just leave it in storage.’ Here is what Tommy Hilfiger is putting up for auction (estimated cost):
Damien Hirst’s Disintegration – The Crown of Life (2006) — $1 million to $1.5 million USD
Jean Dubuffet’s Le Gommeux (1972) — $700,000 to $1 million USD
Keith Haring’s Snake and Man; Dogs and Men (1983) — $700,000 to $1 million USD
Jean-Michel Basquiat’s Untitled (Devil’s Head) (1987) — $3 million to $5 million USD
Ten of Andy Warhol’s Cowboys and Indians (1986) — $250,000 to $350,000 USD
