Marilyn Monroe Items from the Estate of Lee Strasberg to Be Auctioned

By A Beauty Feature @abeautyfeature

Cunard today announced that select pieces from the personal collections of Marilyn Monroe from the estate of Lee Strasberg will also travel on board Queen Mary 2 from August 9-16, 2016. As previously announced, Cunard and Julien’s Auctions, the world record-breaking auction house, will showcase highlights from David Gainsborough Roberts’ renowned Marilyn Monroe film worn collection.

The personal items from the estate of Lee Strasberg include a wide variety of documents and personal items once owned by Marilyn Monroe, and it represents the largest collection of personal Marilyn Monroe artefacts ever offered at auction. Besides being an actor and director in his own right, Strasberg is considered the father of method acting in America. Marilyn developed a close personal relationship with Lee and his wife Paula, and she ultimately bequeathed all of her personal effects and clothing to Lee in her will.

“No one person ever really knew every facet of Marilyn Monroe, though countless books have attempted to piece together every first, second and third hand account of each encounter, often embellished through passage of time,” said Anna Strasberg. “Marilyn was a complex and beguiling figure in her lifetime, leaving generations of adoring fans to speculate, infer and debate about her life. What has resulted is a prismatic kaleidoscope image built upon both fact and fantasy.”

“This is one of the most important and historic auctions of Marilyn Monroe ever,” said Martin Nolan, Executive Director of Julien’s Auctions. “This diverse collection gives us a most intimate glimpse of the screen legend. Never before has there been so many important artifacts from the life and career of the much loved global icon Marilyn Monroe as in our November 19th and 20th auction.”

The Marilyn Monroe Collection, which is touring the world before the auction in November, offers film worn costumes which cover an extensive portion of Marilyn’s acting career and personal pieces of fine jewelry, handbags and personal letters and poems.
