Bukowski's Presents The Marabou Collection in Stockholm

 The major sculpture collection, The Marabou Collection, is from the 19th and 20th centuries. There are pieces by master artists including Auguste Rodin, Jean Arp, Lynn Chadwick, Henri Laurens, Aristide Maillol and Arnaldo Pomodoro. One special masterpiece is "Le Penseur" by Rodin, cast between 1915 and 1925. According to Jérôme Le Blay from the Comité Rodin, Paris, there are only ten known casts of "Le penseur" from this period. The total value of the sculptures is EUR 2,23 million. With the sculptures and many more items including a large Oriental department and Fabergé, which are famous for their eggs, are entrusted to the Bukowski's from the Throne-Holst family to be auctioned.

 The Throne-Holst family was behind the Swedish chocolate brand, Marabou. Henning Throne-Holst (1918-1947) started collecting are and sculptures and his son, Johan, followed suit. The family had strong beliefs about art balancing urbanization and industrialization in the home and workplace. The intention of the Marabou collection was to enhance and improve their lives and personal developments.



 Anna-Karin Pusic, the current head of Bukowski's art department was quoted to say, "Selling such a dignified collection is a historical privilege for Bukowski's. These are unique objects that have never before appeared i the international auction market. It is a great honor for us."
Julian Barran, the Independent expert for 19th and 20th Century European Art says,
“What is so relevant to the collection is the great documentation of all the acquisitions. Today, when there’s been an increase of value for art, buyers want to be sure about what they are buying. In this case, the documentation links right back to the creation of the work, which is very rare."
 The Marabou Collection will be sold on auction in a classic sale at Bukowski's on December 4. Click here to view the auction page and get more information for The Marabou Collection.
