hepburnLondon. Christie’s flagship live and online auctions of the Personal Collection of Audrey Hepburn are a celebration of the life and career of arguably the most famous screen actress of the 20th Century, as seen through the lens of the objects she collected, used and loved. Following the initial announcement, a total of almost 500 lots will be offered in September 2017, across two auctions (Part I and Part II), providing a remarkable opportunity to explore Audrey Hepburn’s personal world, both on and off screen.
The journey ‘begins’ with the earliest item from Hepburn’s collection: a 1940s black lacquered board suitcase, Nedfabrikaat (made in the Netherlands), possibly the suitcase with which she arrived in the United Kingdom (estimate: £400-600) and also the earliest professional lot: a contract for the London production of the hit Broadway musical ‘High Button Shoes’, 1948-1949 (estimate: £1,000-1,500).
