Photographs of the stars to be auctioned for Aids charity
Saturday 02 October 1993
Cecil Beaton, Lord Snowdon, David Bailey and other international photographers' work will be sold on 19 October by Christie's. Some images are donated by the photographers themselves, including 39 pictures by Lord Snowdon - David Hockney in front of his bathroom mirror ( pounds 300- pounds 400), Barbara Cartland beneath a pink parasol (estimated to fetch pounds 300- pounds 400) and Laurence Olivier as King Lear ( pounds 100- pounds 150).
The Marilyn Monroe portrait was taken at her last photo-shoot by George Barris ( pounds 300- pounds 400), and Arnold Schwarzenegger's photograph was taken by Greg Gorman; both are given by the photographers. Music fans are expected to relish Annie Leibovitz's image of Mick Jagger pouting for the cover of his album Jagger ( pounds 1,250- pounds 1,400). Viewing will be at Christie's from 14 October.
A charity auction of contemporary art, held by Christie's in 1988, raised pounds 500,000 for the Lighthouse's capital appeal. Since its opening that year, the hospice has been used by up to 2,000 people a week.
