Elizabeth Taylor Sale

February 10, 2012 by staff 

Elizabeth Taylor SaleElizabeth Taylor Sale, Elizabeth Taylor’s extensive collection of artwork, jewellery and fashion has sold for almost £120 million at auction. Every single item – out of more than 1,800 lots – was sold, some at 50 times their pre-sale estimates.

The auctions took place over two days in New York and London, ending with a sale of 35 pieces of art at Christie’s in London yesterday.

The highest price achieved from the entire collection was a Van Gogh painting, Vue de l’asile et de la Chapelle de Saint-Remy, which fetched £10,121,250 on Tuesday.

It had hung in Taylor’s California home until her death in March 2011.

One highlight of yesterday’s sale was a gift to the late Hollywood actress from her father, the art dealer Francis Taylor.

Dutch artist Kees van Dongen’s Promenade a Cheval sold for £601,250, well above its £120,000 estimate.

A group of 13 paintings by British artist Augustus John sold for a total of £192,825.

All figures included buyer’s premium. A spokesman for Christie’s said that some of the proceeds will go to the Elizabeth Taylor Aids Foundation, which she set up during her lifetime.
