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.

“I will play it differently to Elizabeth Taylor, but I could never be as lovely as she was.”
“We are trying to uncover the truth about her as a leader and not just a sex symbol which she really wasn’t – she didn’t have many lovers, maybe only two, and they’re men she had children with”, said Jolie.
Angelina Jolie confessed that she always admired Cleopatra and was stunned by the things she learned about the famous Egyptian Queen when she began to prepare for this role.
“She was misunderstood and her life story was written wrongly. I always thought her life was very glamorous. Then I read her story and found a different side to her – that she was a mother, leader and an intellect who spoke five languages! Her upbringing also reflected her relationship with Rome – all that is much more interesting than what she was summed up to be.”
“The rumors regarding my engagement simply aren’t true,” the legendary Hollywood actress Tweeted in response to online reports she planned to tie the knot for ninth time with Jason Winters.
