A jewel encrusted Fabergé Egg and works by Picasso will form part of the multi-million dollar art collection on Seven Seas Grandeur when it debuts this month.
Details of the 1,600-piece collection have been revealed. Indeed, it has been sourced from galleries and artists worldwide, taking almost two years to curate and commission. While boasting no fewer than three works by Picasso, the new collection will predominantly feature contemporary art.
“With each new ship, our team works tirelessly to identify and source the most impressive array of art pieces, building a collection that would be enviable by most modern-day museums.”
Andrea DeMarco, President of Regent Seven Seas Cruises.
An art-lovers delight
The 1,600 pieces of art form a collection which will reside permanently on Seven Seas Grandeur. It’s fair to say it makes the vessel an art-lovers destination in its own right.
The collection features a 40-foot-tall hand-woven tapestry known as “The Enchanted Tree” as well as a custom-made bronze and hand-cast glass Bonsai Cherry Tree. Not to mention works by Janna Watson, Melissa McGill, Patti Parsons and Karina Bania, to name but a few of the remarkable contributing artists.
On board art tours
Guests on board Seven Seas Grandeur will have the opportunity to explore the art collection in depth and at their leisure with the new Regent App. By scanning selected artworks via the app they can discover films of the artist, their process and inspiration.
