Herrod's Department store is set to sell 'La Victoire de Samothrace,' which is an incredible glass sculpture that takes its inspiration from the famous french artist Yves Klein.

After his death, Yves Klein became famous for being one of France's most expensive artists despite the fact that financial success eluded him in life. True to that reputation, the 'La Victoire de Samothrace' has been valued at 75,000 Euros. Although not actually made by Yves Klein, the incredible sculpture is a faithful reinterpretation of his work that is both a celebration of his style and a tribute to his legacy. What is impressive is how the deceased artist continues to influence and shape the art world and how his art's value has increased exponentially since he passed away.
