Andy Williams Art Collection Sells For $46 Million
A lot of us remember watching the Andy Williams Show growing up in the 1960′s. Heck, he even introduced us to the Osmonds, remember? And what great Holiday Special’s he hosted. Certainly family friendly!
Well, the late great entertainer was also quite an art collector and according to the Associated Press, it took in a pretty penny at auction.
(AP) – Andy Williams’ art collection has raked in $46 million at auction.
Williams collected all kinds of art over 60 years and displayed them at his homes in California and Missouri, as well as his Moon River Theater in Branson, Missouri.
The art was sold Wednesday at a Christie’s auction in New York. Auction highlights included a Willem de Kooning painting that sold for $9.7 million and one by Jean-Michel Basquiat (zhahn mee-SHEHL’ BAH’-skee-aht) that sold for $5.7 million.
