YVES SAINT LAURENT’S STOLEN ART WORKS
These sketches are apart of an expensive pile of work including: a Helmut Newton photograph, “a wonderful drawing of Saint Laurent’s mother” that Laurent did at the age of 16, a self-portrait where he pictured himself with “death’s head,” a 32-to-36 page journal from his days in Marrakech and a 40-page homage to Maria Callas from her days in Paris when she was at the center of the homosexual scene of Europe.
Today, WWD broke an incredible story about the alleged stealing of these extremely rare art works, embroiling a whole host of powerful players in fashion, art, and business who may or may not be involved in the stealing of said works out of Saint Laurent’s former apartment.
