The Maria Callas Family Estate Auction
Vandenbrook Galleries is partnering with Full House Liquidations to proudly present the Estate Auction of the family of world-renowned opera singer Maria Callas. The contents of the entire home is being auctioned! This sprawling Greek-inspired estate has a somewhat southern-type charm when you first pull onto the property and see the long driveway leading back through the large canopy of oak trees, past the tennis courts, to the breath-taking home. Marble and other statuary, Chinese and Japanese pieces, beautiful art, furniture, sports memorabilia, and smalls galore! The family, of Greek decent, lived in the Tampa area, in Tarpon Springs. During the 1960s, Maria's fame and fortune led her to eventually develop a love interest and long relationship with the world's richest man at the time, billionaire shipping tycoon, Aristotle Onassis. Maria and Aristotle had a relationship that lasted for over 5 years. In 1964 though, when JFK was killed, Onassis left Maria, and he married Jackie Kennedy (Onassis).
