The man famous for giving the Wheel of Fortune its first spins is expected to earn a fortune of his own when he takes his multi-million-dollar art collection to auction.
Television pioneer Reg Grundy, the man who brought game shows Wheel of Fortune and Sale of the Century as well as long-running soap Neighbours into Australian lounge rooms, will sell 90 works from his personal collection.
The media mogul's wife, the actress and author Joy Chambers-Grundy, said the Grundy cupboards were full after 30 years of collecting.
"We now have too many paintings, many more than we can ever hang," she said on Wednesday.
"We hate storing them, they should be seen, appreciated and enjoyed, so we've decided to rationalise part of the collection to allow many exceptional paintings to find new owners."
The sale is expected to be worth as much as $20.8 million.
Auction house Bonhams on Wednesday said it could be the most valuable single-owner auction ever offered in Australia.
The Grundy Collection will go under the hammer in Sydney on June 26.
