Saint Laurent Record Challenged by $82 Million Castle Clear-Out

French collector Laurent Negro may raise a record 60 million euros ($82 million) at the auction of everything in his private museum.

Negro, 39, whose father started temporary employment company Bis SA, is clearing out his medieval Chateau de Gourdon, near Grasse, Provence, to make more living space, Christie’s International said. The three-day sale in Paris, starting today, is led by 20th-century design works by Eileen Gray and Emile-Jacques Ruhlmann.
