Gunter Sachs' ‘Hommage à BB et Andy’ at Quittenbaum

Gunter Sachs had not only a love of women – but also of the arts. In the early 1990s, he dedicated a visual homage to his friend Andy Warhol and ex-wife Brigitte Bardot, the subject being none other than supermodel Claudia Schiffer…

In 1972, Gunter Sachs opened his own gallery in Hamburg, at which he allowed Andy Warhol to hold his first solo exhibition. Almost two decades later, the German created a series of Warhol-style photographs of Claudia Schiffer dedicated to the pop artist and Sachs' former wife, Brigitte Bardot. On 10 December, Quittenbaum auction house will offer a complete portfolio of the eight photographs (from a set of 33) at its Contemporary Art sale in Münich, with an estimate of €120,000 - €150,000.
