London - Arabstoday

Christie\'s auction house says 38 works belonging to the late actress will be included in Impressionist and modern sales on 7 and 8 February that include van Gogh\'s autumn landscape \"Vue de l\'Asile et de la Chapelle de Saint-Remy,\" estimated at five million to seven million pounds ($7.6 million to $11 million), as well as an Edgar Degas self-portrait and works by Camille Pissarro and Auguste Renoir. The daughter of a London art dealer, Taylor amassed a significant collection of 19th and 20th century works. Her father, Francis Taylor, bought the van Gogh painting in 1963 on his daughter\'s behalf for $257,600 at a Sotheby\'s auction in London. It was later the subject of an ownership battle that ended in 2007, when the U.S. Supreme Court refused to consider a claim brought by descendants of a former owner, a Jewish woman who had fled Germany in 1939. \"Having grown up surrounded by fine art and surrounded by her own canvasses until the end of her life, this collection of paintings was very important to Miss Taylor,\" said Christie\'s Impressionist and Modern specialist Giovanna Bertazzoni.She said the auction \"provides collectors with not only a very interesting insight into the icon herself, but also an exciting opportunity to acquire important works by leading Impressionist and modern artists.\" Taylor\'s jewelry, fashions and movie memorabilia raised $156 million at a series of New York auctions last month, with one buyer paying $8.8 million for a 33.19-carat diamond ring given to Taylor by Richard Burton, the actor she married twice. The screen goddess — whose films included \"Cleopatra,\" \'\'Who\'s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?\" and \"Cat on a Hot Tin Roof\" — died in March aged 79. The works will be on display at Christie\'s London showroom 2-7 February. Proceeds from the sale will go to the Elizabeth Taylor Trust.
