Actress Elizabeth Taylor is planning to sell a part of the art collection that her father owned, including a series of works by painter August John.

The actress inherited the art collection from her father, Francis Taylor, which was an art dealer in London.

It seems that the drawings are set to be sold by Chiswick Auctions. Besides, the actress has passed a letter to the auction house to authenticate the lots.

The legend actress wrote: “In the late 1930s my father Francis Taylor based his business as an art dealer in London. During that time he acquired a great many works by Augustus John, including these drawings that the artist had torn up in a fit of anger… and which my father subsequently persuaded him to allow to be pieced back together, a task that my father undertook himself.”

Chiswick Auctions Fine Art Expert, Jan Lehman, explained why Elizabeth Taylor has chosen to sell her father’s art collection with them.

“She filmed at Chiswick House many years ago. She also used to go to a pub in Chiswick High Road with Richard Burton,” he explained.

It seems there would be 44 drawings, some of them include female nude studies, and the estimated value is between £200 and £800.
