Sothebys recreates Versace’s Villa


GQ UK puts us onto the news that Sothebys have recreated Gianni Versace’s villa ahead of their auction of some of his goods. GQ States:

“Highlights from the Villa Fontanelle – which was sold last year – include 19th-century stucco casts of Antonio Canova’s Pair Of Pugilists estimated to be worth up to £40,000, a pair of cherry-wood bookcases by Karl Roos worth £120,000 and a previously unseen painting by 18th-century artist Johann Zoffany. The lots, numbering 550 in total, are expected to fetch in excess of £2m when they go under the hammer on 18 March.”
