"Here we are very honored to be exhibiting the George Michael collection and to be selling it in London in March, which is the spiritual home of young British artists George Michael very much admired and collected over the years. It is a collection which is made with passion. It tells a unique dialogue between a great British music artist and his contemporaries – visual contemporaries."

6. SOUNDBITE (English) Cristian Albu, Christie's co-head of post-war and contemporary art:
"I didn't know until recently that George Michael was an incredible collector. We all discovered that actually he had a passion, and that passion was art. And what made him collect was the fact that he was a composer, he was a songwriter, he was an artist, he was a rebel. He was an incredible beacon for all of us. But the road between visual artists - what we call the painters or the sculptors or the video maker – and music artists like George Michael – is very short. So for him, it was just a nice journey between writing songs and collecting art. For him, art was just another song."

"It's more or less over 200 pieces of art, of works of art. And it's very spread. It goes from – it's not about value. In all honesty, it's about in depth. So what he created – he created, like I said to you – an episode of British art culture in 1990s and 2000s. In terms of the value, it goes anywhere from between 400 pounds and 1 million pounds."
