Yves Saint Laurent's $480 MILLION Art Collection Up for Sale

We're not expecting many Americans to participate in the pricey auction, as our economy will probably be even more in the shitter come auction time.

But, the new news that recently deceased fashion icon Yves Saint Laurent's art collection goes up for sale early next year must have made the rich Arab oil-sheiks, Chinese business titans and Russian oligarchs giddy.

An art dealer told the media that the legendary French designer needed art "like water to survive".

Over the course of 40-years Monsieur Saint Laurent amassed hundreds of fine art pieces.

Works by big name artists like Picasso, Matisse and Goya had a place in his collection.

In fact, one of his Picassos, Instruments de Musique sur un Guéridon, should fetch $56 million!!!!

His partner of over 40-years, Pierre Bergé, said that every single piece in the collection will be sold. Berge said the decision to sell all the items had been taken before the designer succumbed to brain cancer in June. According to a report, Berge revealed that only when the last object had passed under the hammer would this signify the end. He also drew a comparison with divorce, saying "even when these objects are gone, they won't leave me".

Berge also said some of the proceeds will go towards the fight against AIDS.

Kudos to that!

  38. 38

    Speak for yourself. Plenty of fat cat rich Americans still around. Warren Buffet, Bill Gates, Rupert Murdoch, etc. etc. etc. The very very rich are rarely affected by the economy.

    that's quite frankly, disgusting.

    they could be probably eliminate poverty in dozens of third world countries/areas, with the price they're going to be pay for this useless shit, painted by someone who probably got high off their own paint, swished their paint brush around, took a piss on the canvas, died, and then it was sold for millions.

    piece of shits.



  42. 42

    Wow he looks so much like Crispin Glover. Glover could totally play him in the made for TV lifetime movie! T ehe!



  43. 43
