Lord Archer to sell 150 artworks

29th March 2011

A painting by French impressionist Claude Monet is just one of 150 artworks belonging to Jeffrey Archer which are set to be sold at action this summer.

The former politician and author, whose works include Twelve Red Herrings and Kane and Abel, is selling the pieces, which have a value in excess of GBP 5 million, at an auction at Christie's in June.

As well as Monet's La Seine pres de Vetheuil, which has been valued at GBP 1.2 million, a portrait of Marilyn Monroe by Andy Warhol will feature in the catalogue.

Walter Richard Sickert's Rue de la Boucherie with St Jacques and L'Eternelle Idole by Auguste Rodin are also up for sale.

'I recently celebrated my 70th birthday – an event which prompts a certain degree of thought and realisation. As a result, I have begun to restructure my art collection with a view to the future,' said Lord Archer.

Archer is currently on a book tour of five countries, where he is promoting his new novel Only Time Will Tell.
