Simon’s World . . . On Instagram
Snapshots from the life of the auctioneer.
Take a peek into the life of auctioneer, collector, and artnet News columnist Simon de Pury. Via his Instagram, he will be sharing a bit of glamour and a bit of excitement with us—whether he’s trotting the globe or on the scene closer to home.
Simon de Pury rang in the new year with a family vacation and some skiing in the sunshine. Looks like the perfect start to 2015. He also made it known that he’s a big fan of Rob Pruitt’s recent Instagram series (see Will Rob Pruitt’s Instagram Series Get Gallery Show?), which involves pairing art world luminaries with their Hollywood doppelgangers. de Pury shared Pruitt’s image of him beside British actor Ralph Fiennes, claiming that he loved both the actor and the social media–based art project.
de Pury also posted several images in solidarity with the Charlie Hebdo tragedy, including one aerial shot from a rally (see Londoners March in Solidarity for Charlie Hebdo in Trafalgar Square). On a very different note, he acknowledged the birthday of supermodel Kate Moss with an image of a sculpture of her by Allen Jones from a retrospective at the Royal Academy of Arts. He also shared portraits of artists Ayan Farah, Chris Succo, Thomas Heatherwick, Olivier Mosset, and Rolf Sachs.
