Crichton’s art collection up for sale

The prolific writer, who died in 2008, was a private collector of 20th century masters including Pablo Picasso and Andy Warhol.

His stash of masterpieces is valued at $32 million (£20 million) and will go under the hammer at Christie’s auction house in New York in May (10).

The highlight is expected to be a pop art piece, titled Flag, painted by Jasper Johns.
