Three works from late Hollywood actress Liz Taylor’s impressive art collection have sold at a London auction for nearly 14 million pounds ($22 million), Christie’s announced today.

The lot’s highest-selling item was Van Gogh’s “Vue de l’asile de la Chapelle de Remy”, which used to hang in the living room of the actress’ Bel Air home. The landscape painting sold for more than 10 million pounds (nearly 16 million) to an anonymous telephone bidder.
The two other pieces, a self-portrait by Edgar Degas and a landscape by Claude Pissarro, sold earlier in the evening.
In December, Christie’s sold Taylor’s collection of jewelry, fashion and memorabilia for well over $100 million.
