Here’s what’s coming in the Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward auction series
NEW YORK – Sotheby’s has unveiled the full auction contents of The World of Joanne Woodward and Paul Newman, which will be offered across a series of auctions this June in New York. The series of sales, consisting of more than 300 individual items that the legendary actors assembled and enjoyed throughout their 50-year marriage, will offer a window into the personal and professional lives of the famed couple who were also dedicated philanthropists. Drawn primarily from their residence in Connecticut, the Sotheby’s sales will offer film and entertainment memorabilia, automotive and racing collectables, family photographs, antique furniture and fine decorative arts collected by the couple – in addition to two of Newman’s highly coveted Rolex wristwatches. Together, the auctions will illuminate the two worlds that Woodward and Newman occupied: the glamorous lifestyle of a Hollywood power-couple, and their private life where they surrounded themselves with the people, objects and philanthropic causes they cherished the most.
