The sizeable art collection of the German playboy and wealthy heir, the late Gunter Sachs, is to be auctioned at Sotheby’s in May and is expected to fetch more than £20m.

The star lot is a stunning Andy Warhol portrait of Bardot which Sachs commissioned in 1974 – five years after the couple divorced. Sachs had a large modern art collection; the London sale of 300 artworks and objects from surrealism to art deco, range in estimates from £50 to £3m. The sale will include photographs taken by Sachs himself and paintings by Rene Magritte, Salvador Dali and Yves Klein.

Cheyenne Westphal, chairman of contemporary art for Sotheby’s Europe, said: “While many works are being retained by the family, this sale of works by the Estate will give collectors an opportunity to acquire a piece of Gunter Sachs’s legend and history.”
