Luise Rainer Auction Catalog (Hardcover)

Icons and Idols: Rock N Roll Auction

Order your limited hard cover edition of Julien’s Property from the Estate of Luise Rainer full-color catalog. 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. Her historic rise in Hollywood is what film legends are made of. After a rocky relationship with Hollywood, this German born American/Viennese actress spent her time between Switzerland and England, and finally settled in England in the 1990s following her second husband’s death.

Old Master fine art highlights from the estate include a collection of Russian Icons, some originally purchased from the venerable New York A La Vielle Russie and Hammer Galleries, including Our Lady of Kazan with metalwork by Pavel Ovchinnikov, and also a late 16th century Icon believed to have been owned by Czarina Alexandra Feodorovna. The collection also includes Old Master paintings and sculpture, including a carved oak St. Catherine formerly in the collection of William Randolph Hearst, a portrait believed to be Anne of Austria (the mother of Louis XIV) by Jan Van Kessel, and a beautiful Madonna and Child panel attributed to El Divino.

Rainer herself was a student of art and many examples of her paintings and shadowbox assemblages are included in this sale. One standout example is her Cubist rendering of Velazquez’s Las Meninas.

All of these fascinating pieces of history and so much more are included in this magnificent coffee table-style book. The catalog showcases the life and career of Luise Rainer, the iconic starlet from Hollywood’s Golden Era.
