The music artist, who passed away in December 2016, sold over 100 million albums worldwide over his career.


The two-part sale will feature 75 lots on March 14, at a live auction in London. Over 130 will be available online during a sale taking place between March 8 and 15. The funds raised will be used to continue Michael’s philanthropic engagements.

“The George Michael Collection represents a unique dialogue between a great British music artist and his contemporaries in the visual arts, such as Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin, Sarah Lucas, Michael Craig-Martin, and Marc Quinn, who rose to prominence by challenging the status quo, and together created the Young British Art movement.”

Estimates for the works on offer range from £400 in the online sale, to £1.5m at the live auction.
