In 2009, following Saint Laurent’s death the year before, Christie’s auctioned off a significant number of works from his private collection, raising a record $484 million, the most valuable private collection ever sold at auction. This seminar will discuss the amazing contents of that auction, and the individual masterpieces present.

The 800 lots offered at auction spanned everything from Antiquity to Modern Art, previously housed in the many homes of Yves Saint Laurent’s partner, Pierre Bergé. This seminar will discuss the amazing interiors, and most importantly, the artworks, furniture, and objects that formed, in the words of Christie's catalog, “the refined taste and voraciously curious mind of the collector behind them.”

Led by an expert on art history painting, Sabry Amroussi, this interactive seminar will explore the marvelous private art collection once belonging to fashion icon Yves Saint Laurent. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with an increased understanding of the extensive collection and the distinctive residences in which it was displayed.

Sabry Amroussi is an art historian and writer living and working in Amsterdam. He specializes in the art of the Dutch Golden Age, mainly in the works of Rembrandt and his school, and also has a keen interest in the Jewish history of Amsterdam. He lectures and teaches on both subjects, and gives art historical tours all across Europe. As a true omnivore when it comes to art, culture, and even cuisine, he has worked with and for major museums and collectors, such as the LACMA, Rijksmuseum, van Gogh Museum and the P de Boer collection in Amsterdam. As a guide for Context, he is eager to share this knowledge in real life, always with a big scoop of humor, ofter intermingling art with social life, cuisine, and history.
