The Ultimate Muse

Sep 9, 2013 8:57PM

Andy Warhol had Edie Sedgwick, Robert Mapplethorpe had Patti Smith, and some of the most fortunate artists today have had the pleasure of working with the muse of our generation: Kate Moss. According to sculptor Allen Jones, “As a model, Kate has become a commodity. For the media she is news, and for artists she is now subject matter.”

Described as “the greatest fashion icon of our time” by trend luminaries such as Angela Buttolph, Kate has taken command of the art, music, and style industries ever since she embarked on the iconic 1993 campaign with Calvin Klein.

This month, we are extremely excited to be hosting a Kate Moss sale and to honor this remarkable modern muse today through a series of photographs and sculptures.  As the photographer Juergen Teller once stated: “Kate is just completely cool.”


This one-day sale will take place in Christie’s London saleroom on September 25th. See more images here.
