Washington, Feb 8 (ANI): A collection of artwork owned by the late Dame Elizabeth Taylor fetched 21.9 million dollars at an auction.


Vincent Van Gogh's landscape Vue de l'asile de la Chapelle de Remy, which hung in the living room of the late star's California home, was the biggest draw of the Christie's sale in London on Tuesday where it netted 16 million dollars.


"As the crown jewel of her art collection, we are delighted with the price achieved for Van Gogh's Vue de l'asile, a profoundly beautiful work from one of the creative high points of the artist's career," Contactmusic quoted Marc Porter, chairman of Christie's Americas, as saying.


A youthful self-portrait by Edgar Degas and a large-scale landscape by Claude Pissarro were also sold for 1.1 million and 4.7 million dollars respectively. (ANI)
