The venerable Ms. Littlejohn is the President and Owner of RRL Fine Art, and in that capacity, and for her pioneering and storied conservation and restoration career, Ms. Littlejohn has been called
"a Pinnacle Professional in the field of Fine Art." Ms. Littlejohn has worked for over four decades to restore, conserve, and sell works of art from and throughout Europe. Please follow this
link to discover more of the amazing life led by Ms. Littlejohn: http://roselittlejohn.com/.
During her lifetime, Ms. Littlejohn has amassed a one-of-a-kind collection of antique and unique works of art, sculptures, and other treasures, including pieces by Edgar Degas, Pablo Picasso,
Salvador Dalí, Alexander Calder, André Masson, Michael Henry, Roy Lichtenstein, Gaston André, Nancy Lund, and dozens of other prolific artists.
Ms. Littlejohn has decided to sell many of the treasures from her private collection in Memphis, as she begins to spend more time at her home in New York City.
Many of the works are rare but still in pristine condition, a testament of the bona fides that have been the foundation of Ms. Littlejohn's professional career in the world of international
art conservation and restoration.
This auction will also feature a selection of wonderful antiques, including hand-made Persian rugs, antique lamps, Silver, concert grand pianos, giant mantle mirrors, French and Empire furniture,
antique clocks, China, as well as Memphis memorabilia.
This auction is the most important and noteworthy auction of fine art I have had the privilege to sell in over 30 years in the business. Due to the massive inventory, we strongly encourage
