Sotheby’s will auction off the collection of the late French illustrator Pierre Le-Tan, which includes a portrait by David Hockney. “We’re trying to stay true to his spirit. It’s not one of these collections where you’re going to have a $20 million Picasso. It’s a universe we want to re-create, one we hope will appeal to all kinds of collectors around the world.

Galerie Max Hetzler
Oudenarder Str. 16-20
The Max Hetzler gallery is one of the largest and oldest in Berlin. It consists of three different exhibition spaces that each show different artists. It shows top quality pieces by well known contemporary artists. It was previously located in West Berlin, but now sits in the eastern part of the city near to what used to be the Berlin Wall. This location is ideal, as East Berlin is often compared with the bohemian Greenwich Village in New York City. Both are cultural centers brimming with creativity and art.
