This distinctive compilation of art and interior decoration comprises a mix of modern, vintage and antique pieces, many of which have been purchased by Sir Rod himself at auction houses, galleries and antiques shops, from across the UK and worldwide. This harmonious ensemble offers a nod to the classical European interior aesthetic, but with the undeniable flair of an international superstar.

Within the collection are a multitude of works of art, furniture, and paintings, including two marvellous maritime paintings: ‘Hispania Leads at the Gybe Mark, Western Solent, 1912' by John Steven Dews (b.1949) and 'Britannia Racing in the Clyde' by David Brackman (1932-2007).

 

David Brackman (1932-2007) 'Britannia Racing in the Clyde' signed and dated 'DAVID BRACKMAN 02' l.l., oil on canvas 76 x 111.5cm (£7,000 - 9,000)

Statement pieces such as lot 502, a giltwood console table, are aplenty, all of which aim to provide vibrancy, vitality and glamour into a modern home.

The collection also offers a more classical interior décor, such as lot 515 and 516, a set of six engravings of classical statues and an en grisalle painting of Volumnia and Veturia pleading with Coriolanus to make peace with Rome, which characterise a timeless style and bring a sense of history and charm to any residence.
