San Francisco-based Clars Auction Gallery launched an online auction featuring fine and decorative artworks from the collection of late iconic actor and comedian, Robin Williams. From a taxidermy monkey that starred in Williams’ Night at the Museum 2006 film to a diptych painting portraying traditional Japanese motifs from pro-skateboarder Toshikazu Nozaka, the gamut is both whimsical and diverse.
“Robin Williams’ fans will recall the late comedian’s connection to Crystal, a screen monkey who co-starred with Robin Williams in ‘Night at the Museum.’ Robin celebrated his final birthday with Crystal the monkey, posing with her on his 63rd birthday on July 21st, 2014,” as per a press statement.
Additional highlights include gothic art pieces by Donald Roller Wilson including the painter’s Shirley’s Friend Waited for Shirley but She Never Came estimated to bring in $10,000 USD to $15,000 USD. Moreover, Kim Cogan’s painting, Ducks in a Row, is also up for grabs and estimated at $6,000 USD to $9,000 USD.
