Elizabeth Taylor’s Painting Collection Sells for $21.9 Million

Paintings that belonged to Elizabeth Taylor raised $21.9 million at auction last night as investment-conscious bidders bought rare works by major-name artists.

The top lot owned by the late actress was a Vincent Van Gogh painting that sold at Christie’s International in London for 10.1 million pounds ($16 million) with fees, beating a hammer-price estimate of 5 million pounds to 7 million pounds.
