David Bowie's personal art collection is up for sale at Southeby's in November. Four hundred items from this private assemblage will be exhibited in London, Los Angeles, New York and Hong Kong prior to this.
It's exhibitions like this that give us an insight into what inspired this talented man and others like him. Listening to Bowie's music without a doubt will have stimulated many writers and painters, and will continue to do so in the years to come.
The true genius and the value of many truly great artists is not recognised until they pass away. Not so with Bowie, he had the recognition he deserved in his life-time. In the works he collected, there are many unknown artists, however this treasure trove is likely to help the artists that excited him gain the appreciation they merit.
