luise-rainer-auction-catalog   Julien’s Auctions announces the sale of property from the estate of Luise Rainer. The items in the collection feature an array of fine European antiques, Old Master and Contemporary fine art, career memorabilia, furniture, and personal effects from the actress and her longtime home in London’s trendy Eaton Square. They will be offered in an  anticipated Fall auction.

   Aside from her acting talents, Rainer had a very discerning eye for traditional European antiques and built a massive collection of 17th and 18th century Continental case pieces over the many decades. This auction also features memorabilia and photographs from Rainer’s storied career, including a solid 14K gold 1936 Motion Picture Critics of America medal, sterling monogrammed dresser sets, personal effects such as clothing and shoes, a George Hurrell black-and-white photograph portrait, and a series of black-and-white photographs of Rainer with her good friend Albert Einstein.

   All of the property in the auction is featured in a full color limited edition catalogue available for purchase at www.juliensauctions.com.

   Luise Rainer was the first actress to win back-to-back Academy Awards, the first in 1936 for her performance as Anna Held in The Great Ziegfeld; and the second in 1937 for her performance as O-Lan in The Good Earth. After an increasingly rocky relationship with Hollywood, this American/Viennese star spent her time between Switzerland and England and finally settled in England in the 1990s. She lived for over a century.

   This is a rare opportunity to own items from a true classic Hollywood legend.
