David Bowie’s personal art collection will be revealed to the public for the first time this November. Sotheby's is set to host an exhibition at the New Bond Street galleries in London from November 1-10, before the pieces are eventually auctioned off.

The exhibition will feature 267 pieces, including work from Jean-Michel Basquiat, Frank Auerbach, Marcel Duchamp, Henry Moore, Graham Sutherland, and Damien Hirst. The art is expected to sell for more than $13.2 million, with the Basquiat 'Air Power' piece alone expected to rake in $2.5-3.5 million.

"David’s art collection was fuelled by personal interest and compiled out of passion," a spokesperson for the Bowie estate said. "He always sought and encouraged loans from the collection and enjoyed sharing the works in his custody. Though his family are keeping certain pieces of particular personal significance, it is now time to give others the opportunity to appreciate – and acquire – the art and objects he so admired."
