Besides her prolific acting career, Elizabeth Taylor was known as a serious collector of jewelry, art, and fashion. Now, her collection will be showcased in a series of public exhibitions and special events curated by the auction house Christie's, culminating in the sale of Elizabeth Taylor's collection.
The international, three-month tour will begin in September with stops in Paris, London, Los Angeles, Dubai, Moscow, Geneva, and Hong Kong. Ultimately, the tour will end at New York's Rockefeller Center with a 10-day exhibition of Taylor's collection of fashion, accessories, jewelry, and art. The auction will then take place from Dec. 3 through Dec. 16.
While I'm definitely curious to see what Ms. Taylor has — she has an impressive collection of impressionist and modern art — I'm also happy to hear that Christie's will honor Taylor's devotion to humanitarian causes by donating a portion of the money from the events to The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation, which provides funding to AIDS service organizations throughout the world to assist those living with HIV and AIDS. Tell me, is this a collection you'd be interested in visiting? Personally, I'd love to see what art she collected over her lifetime.
