ATLANTA, Ga. – The staggering lifetime collection of ship models, important nautical art and maritime collectibles of the late publishing magnate Malcolm Forbes (1919-1990) will be sold the weekend of Jan. 29-30 by Red Baron, the premier auction house in the Southeast.  The Forbes collection will be sold on Jan. 29, 2011; other nautical items and estates will be offered Jan. 30.

“This is a rare opportunity to purchase items that were amassed over a lifetime by one of the world’s most avid collectors,” said Bob Brown of Red Baron, adding, “The collection includes the largest private fleet of ship models ever assembled. It is well known that Malcolm Forbes bought only the best, and we are bringing that opportunity to you, the discerning bidder.”

The auction will feature models, half models and working models of all types of ships; over 400 lots of original maritime oil paintings by artists such as Matisse, James G. Tyler, Walter Cichocki, C. Bloch, H. Maes, Cornelis de Wael and others; and spectacular examples of nautical memorabilia. The action will get underway at 11 a.m. on Jan. 29, and at 9 a.m. on Jan. 30 (EST).

Malcolm Forbes was a larger-than-life figure who owned Forbes Magazine and lived a lavish lifestyle. He was a dedicated sailor, embarking on grand voyages aboard his beloved Highlander yachts. He was also a collector, of fine art, Faberge eggs, hot air balloons, historical documents and Harley Davidson motorcycles (which he famously rode later in life). Many photos of these items can be seen in a book on Forbes' life titled More Than I Dreamed: A Lifetime of Collecting. The book is a sweeping look at the man, his life and his many residences.
