NEW YORK — Lauren Bacall’s art, jewelry and furniture will be auctioned in New York.

 

Her estate is selling hundreds of items that once filled her three homes. Bonhams auction house estimates they will bring $3 million.

 

The film and theater legend died in New York City in August at age 89.

 

Bonhams says two Henry Moore sculptures from the collection will be offered during its impressionist and modern art sale in November.

 

Bacall was a big fan of Moore’s work. Six more of his sculptures will be sold in March, with about 700 other lots. They include tribal art and paintings by Pablo Picasso, Joan Miro, Alexander Calder and others.

 

They once decorated her homes in Los Angeles, Amagansett, Long Island, and the famed Dakota apartment building in Manhattan.
