Elizabeth Taylor’s Art Collection on the Auction Block

In early December, sales from the late Elizabeth Taylor’s jewelry collection at Christie’s nearly reached a record-breaking $116 million. That record has since been shattered earlier this week, after the auction house’s New York and London locations hosted a series of sales from the late actress’s estate. The entire collection sold for a whopping $183 million, including 38 seminal works of art from Taylor’s impressive collection, sold exclusively in London .

As the daughter of esteemed art dealer Francis Taylor, Elizabeth Taylor invested much of her earnings in fine art. Below are my two favorite items from the auction.
