A series of public exhibitions and special events will take place leading up to the sale of the collection of the late Elizabeth Taylor. An international, three-month tour of highlights from her expansive collection starts in September and includes stops in Moscow, London, Los Angeles, Dubai, Geneva, Paris, and Hong Kong.
The tour will culminate in New York's Rockefeller Center with a special 10-day exhibition of Taylor's jewelry, fashion, accessories, decorative arts and memorabilia, followed by four consecutive days of auctions slated for December 3 to December 16.
"Christie’s is honored to have been entrusted with this important role in celebrating the extraordinary life and legacy of Elizabeth Taylor," said Marc Porter, Chairman and President of Christie's Americas. "The global tour and exhibition of her collection at Christie's will be a window into the world of a true icon, a rare woman who was at once an international film and fashion star, loving mother, successful businesswoman, and generous humanitarian. This collection of her many cherished possessions will bring us closer to the essence of Elizabeth Taylor’s unique spirit, and promises to inspire admiration, delight, and at times, sheer wonder, in all who come to see it.”
In keeping with Elizabeth Taylor’s life-long devotion to humanitarian causes, Christie’s will donate a portion of the auction proceeds to the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation (ETAF). ETAF provides funding to AIDS service organizations throughout the world to assist those living with HIV and AIDS.
