Gunter Sachs Sale

Yesterday evening Sotheby's in London flogged the art collection of German billionaire playboy Gunter Sachs, whose main claim to fame seems to have been sweeping Brigitte Bardot off her feet. The marriage lasted all of three years. Gunter committed suicide last year, aged 78, presumably due to his fear of Alzheimer's disease. This Hatstand by pop artist Allen Jones gives you an idea of Gunter's taste in art. A complete set of Jones's pervy female mannequin furniture, including a table, chair and this hatstand, sold for £4.1m, about 20 times the pre-auction estimate (CLICK).
