Sotheby’s Australia is handling the actor’s April 7 purge of watches, artwork and collectibles.

More details have emerged about Russell Crowe’s plan for an April 7 auction of watches, movie and sport memorabilia, art, furniture, musical instruments (we count 19 guitars) and other items he’s collected over the years. There are even two motorcycles and a 2001 Mercedes-Benz S500. Sotheby’s Australia has scored the auction rights to the high-profile event, which has been christened with a title that offers a bit more insight into the actor’s motivation for the sale. "Russell Crowe: The Art of Divorce" adorns the auction catalog (which can be purchased for $60); details and photos of the event's 227 lots were posted on the Sotheby’s Australia website last night.
The Gladiator Oscar winner married Australian actress and singer Danielle Spencer in 2003; the couple, who have two sons, separated in 2012. The December 2017 timing of Crowe’s first tweet about the auction coincides with reports that the couple had reached a settlement agreement on their divorce and the auction site indeed refers to Spencer as his "former wife." That April 7 auction date also was not chosen randomly: It’s Crowe’s birthday and the couple’s wedding anniversary.
“Divorce has its way of making you really examine the things that are essential in life — and the things that are not,” Crowe said in a statement released by Sotheby’s Australia. “Through the process I had a look around and realized I had a lot of stuff. Career stuff, stuff I’ve collected, and stuff in general. Boxes and boxes of stuff…so in the spirit of moving forward into fresh air, here’s a portion of that collection of stuff.”
