When I read that Dina Vierny's collection of art was to be sold at auction today, I thought how neat. 1. I like private collections, never seen before and 2. I wanted to see what she and Maillol collected. Well, first off, I doubt that what was on display today was their entire holdings and secondly, having seen Dina' breasts at the Maillol Museum in all their splendor, I don't think I need to see them much more, but I did.
There are many other works up for sale at Artcurial, but like Vierny's breasts, Francis Bacon's huge offerings here wear thin and I got most excited exiting and seeing Gustaf Eiffel's circular stairway - now that's genuine art.
