Van Gogh, John Lennon letters coming to NY auction
NEW YORK (AP) — An upcoming auction of over 300 historical documents includes rare letters written by Vincent van Gogh, John Lennon and other iconic figures.
The property of an unidentified American collector is being offered by Profiles in History. The online and phone auction is set for Dec. 18.
A top item is a signed van Gogh letter, written in 1890, to Joseph and Marie Ginoux (jih-NOO'). They were the proprietors of the Cafe de la Gare in Arles, France, where the post-impressionist artist lived for a time. It's estimated to bring $200,000 to $300,000.
A handwritten letter from Lennon to Eric Clapton has a pre-sale estimate of $20,000 to $30,000.
The collection will be exhibited Dec. 3-9 at Douglas Elliman on Madison Avenue.
