Collection of Barbra Streisand to Preview Aboard Queen Mary 2


Possessions spanning star’s life and career to be auctioned live in Beverly Hills in October, benefiting charities supported by The Streisand Foundation.


6 August, 2009 – Cunard Line and Julien’s Auctions are partnering once again – to present an exclusive preview from The Collection of Barbra Streisand – onboard flagship Queen Mary 2’s Transatlantic Crossing to England departing New York 23 August, before they are sold at auction live and online at The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, CA on 17 and 18 October, 2009. All proceeds from the auction will benefit The Streisand Foundation, founded more than two decades ago by the famed actress-singer-director-composer-activist-philanthropist, to aid humanitarian causes worldwide.

During the Queen Mary 2 Transatlantic voyage, Darren Julien, President, and Martin Nolan, Executive Director, of Julien’s Auctions will be joined by Marty Erlichman, Streisand’s long-time manager, to present an exclusive inside look at the auction and the prolific career of the famed entertainer through the line’s acclaimed onboard enrichment programme, Cunard Insights.

After Queen Mary 2 arrives in Southampton, the auction highlights will then be exhibited at The Museum of Style Icons in Newbridge, County Kildare, Ireland. From Ireland, the highlights will travel to Beverly Hills where a full public exhibition will be presented.

Julien’s Auctions will offer more than 400 lots from Barbra Streisand’s stunning personal collection, including fine and decorative art, Americana furnishings, Art Deco fixtures, oriental rugs, Native American baskets, and the international star’s personal Yamaha Baby Grand Piano, along with timeless movie memorabilia and costumes from her numerous film, television, live concert and special personal appearances. Clothing highlights include costumes and outfits from “The Way We Were,” “Funny Lady,” “On a Clear Day,” “Yentl,” “Nuts,” “Prince of Tides” and “Meet The Fockers,” as well as custom Donna Karan and other designer pieces, including two vintage Christian Dior fashions.

Exhibitions for the auction will be created by WRJ Design Associates, who have designed exhibitions for The Estate of Katharine Hepburn, The Estate of Johnny Cash, The Collection of Cher and recently The Collection of Michael Jackson.

Registration is required to bid in the live auction of The Collection of Barbra Streisand. Registration and bidding, including absentee bidding, can be done either in person at the exhibitions and auction, by visiting before the sale, or by calling (310) 836-1818.
