Buy Ingmar Bergman's life

bergman

“This is my wish and no discussion or emotional tumult must come as a result.” Those are words from Ingmar Bergman’s will regarding his wish to sell all of his possessions after his death. If you never thought you could own the desk where Bergman wrote many of his scripts or the bed he slept in, now is your chance. On September 28th his family will auction off everything from his Isle of Fårö home, and I mean everything, right down to his dishes.

Amongst the items in the preview catalogue are lots of Danish modern furniture (a yellow armchair a steal at $75), photographs, including his famous portrait by Irving Penn, art by Edward Much, Picasso and Chagall, and his awards (and there are tons) for films like WILD STRAWBERRIES and THROUGH A GLASS DARKLY.
