NEW YORK (AP) - Andy Williams' song repertoire was all American - but his art collection was eclectic.

Christie's will be auctioning his wide-ranging selection of artworks May 15-16. It's expected to realize $30 million.

The late singer's taste ranged from contemporary, impressionist and modern to Latin American and 20th century decorative art and design.

He collected over a 60-year period. He displayed the works at his California and Missouri homes, as well as his Moon River Theater in Branson, Mo.

Among the highlights are several Willem de Koonings and pieces by Richard Diebenkorn (DEE'-bihn-kohrn), Jean-Michel Basquiat (zhahn mee-SHEHL' BAH'-skee-aht) and Pablo Picasso.

He died last year at age 84. The baritone was known for his wholesome, middle-America appeal and easy-listening hits including the theme to the Oscar-winning tearjerker "Love Story."
