This October, Christie’s will auction works from The Royal House of Savoy – a fascinating collection spanning 24 centuries of artistic achievement with works ranging from 4th century B.C. Daunian pottery and 17th-century family portraits to Chinese porcelain, rare manuscripts and post-war works by, Pomodoro and Lichtenstein. This sale follows the successful sales from the collections of S.A.R. La Principessa Reale Maria Beatrice di Savoia in 2005 and S.A.R. La Principessa Reale Maria Gabriella di Savoia in 2007 and demonstrates a continuance of the centuries-old royal tradition of patronage and collecting with the layered collection enriched by the acquisition of bold 20th-century works of art offering a unique glimpse of royal collecting in our own time.
