Robert Kime: The Personal Collection | Wednesday 4, Thursday 5 & Friday 6 October 2023
Dreweatts has the great honour to be holding the auction Robert Kime: The Personal Collection. Known the world over as a titan of design and the ‘great assembler’ of beautiful things, Robert Kime’s unique eye and aesthetic sensibility led him to become one of the leading design figures of his generation. The culmination of Robert’s life-time of collecting will form a three-day auction, charting his passion, curiosity and delight in beautiful things through the contents of his homes in London and Provence.
The collection of works that Robert gathered about him throughout his career, illustrate his deep knowledge of art, architecture and design and how this could be deployed to build a home. You can now explore the rooms and gardens of Robert's French property, La Gonette, a 17th/18th century manor house in the Genoese style, known as 'The Sleeping Princess'.
