Never-Before Seen Bob Guccione Collection to Be Featured at BFA Auction

Jerrick Media, a Digital Media Company Founded by Jeremy Frommer and Rick Schwartz, Announced Today That The Guccione Collection Will Be Exclusively Available for Purchase on December 16 at 11:30 am

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - December 07, 2015) - The collection is available for purchase on December 16 at 11:30 am, with preview showings at the BFA Auction house in Englewood, NJ December 10, 11, 12, and 15, from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. The Guccione Collection stems from the vaults of artist and publisher Bob Guccione's massive estate of fine art and collectibles. Each item is authentic and original; there are no reproductions or copies. Authentic works from The Guccione Collection have been preserved for decades, never before seen by the public. Guccione's eye for beauty, style, and art is apparent in this eclectic and fascinating collection.

Jerrick Media CEO Jeremy Frommer said, "Long before Bob Guccione was a media magnet, he was an artist on the streets of Rome in the 1960s. During the late '80s, his oils were exhibited at museums and galleries throughout New York City. The importance of his art speaks for itself and permeates throughout Guccione's sketches and photography."

Bob Guccione is universally recognized as an unusual entrepreneur who has the rare talent of combining the vision and sensitivity of an artist with the entrepreneurial savvy and commercial instinct of a gifted businessman. With no formal art training, he set sail for Europe in 1949 with nothing but a box of paints, some brushes, and $24 in cash.

The exhibit will feature hand painted oils from Guccione himself, Caligula memorabilia, authentic sketches, and personal estate items all spanning the five decades of Guccione's life.
