During the transatlantic voyage, Darren Julien, president, and Martin Nolan, executive director, of Julien’s Auctions will be joined by Marty Erlichman, Streisand’s long-time manager, to present an exclusive inside look at the auction and the prolific career of the famed entertainer through the line’s acclaimed onboard enrichment programme, Cunard Insights.

After Queen Mary 2 arrives in Southampton, the auction highlights will then be exhibited at The Museum of Style Icons in Newbridge, County Kildare, Ireland. From Ireland, the highlights will travel to Beverly Hills where a full public exhibition will be presented.

Julien’s Auctions will offer more than 400 lots from Barbra Streisand’s personal collection, including fine and decorative art, Americana furnishings, Art Deco fixtures, oriental rugs, Native American baskets, and the international star’s personal Yamaha Baby Grand Piano, along with timeless movie memorabilia and costumes from her numerous film, television, live concert and special personal appearances. Clothing highlights include costumes and outfits from “The Way We Were,” “Funny Lady,” “On a Clear Day,” “Yentl,” “Nuts,” “Prince of Tides” and “Meet The Fockers,” as well as custom Donna Karen and other designer pieces, including two vintage Christian Dior fashions.

Registration is required to bid in the live auction. Registration and bidding, including absentee bidding, can be done either in person at the exhibitions and auction, by visiting www.juliensauctions.com before the sale, or by calling (310) 836-1818.
