Art has always inspired me in all aspects of my life. Working with Sotheby's has been amazing for me and the team—and I am so excited about this latest installation at Dover Street celebrating the work of Andy Warhol. I hope you love seeing the works in situ in the store as much as I do! VB
It’s not every day that Dover Street in Mayfair gets a dose of Andy Warhol’s Factory day magic. But starting today and on view through October 4th, twelve of Warhol’s most iconic pieces will be displayed inside Victoria’s Dover Street flagship in partnership with Sotheby’s.
“I have always been interested in contemporary art and David and I have been collecting for a long time now,” says Victoria. “The relationship I have built with Sotheby’s over the past year has taught me so much, and I feel so lucky that they continue to bring works to showcase in my store.”
This latest exhibition builds off of Victoria’s relationship with Sotheby’s—she previously featured Old Masters—but with a pop art twist. “Warhol was an obvious choice,” says Alex Branczik, Sotheby’s European Head of Contemporary Art. Pieces on view include the Dollar Sign from 1981, a Self-portrait in the Fright Wig from 1986, and an acrylic and silkscreen ink on canvas mashup of Judy Garland and Liza Minnelli from 1979. “His work irrevocably blurred the lines between all forms of creativity.” And Victoria applies the same approach to her life.
“This exhibition feels extra special—I remain fascinated by the stories the pieces shown in my store tell, and hope others will feel the same.”
