Julien’s Cabinet of Wonder
Julien’s Auctions hosted their “Music Icons” and “Hollywood Legends” summer sales at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino, Las Vegas from June 24-27.
“A bloody piece of wood, a stuffed beaver, an elephant’s tusk, a siren’s hand, and a painting by Dürer–not an untypical trove. Nor is it untypical for the provenance of many of what we today consider Renaissance and Baroque masterpieces to wend their way back through hodgepodge collections such as these.”(119)
