Iconic photographs of movie stars and musicians go up for auction

Europe’s fastest growing online auction house, Catawiki has announced the sale of 100 stunning photographs of some of the world’s most iconic movie stars and musicians. The auction showcases images of Hollywood stars and Rock n’ Roll legends such as Sofia Loren, The Beatles and Marilyn Monroe.

Following the continued interested in celebrity memorabilia, Catawiki is offering collectors and fans the chance to own their very own piece of silver-screen history with this selection of stunning photography. This particular auction includes photographs of Sophia Loren from the mid-sixties, epitomising the ‘mod’ look that dominated this era.

Vintage photographs such as these continue to be popular amongst bidders and with bids starting from £1 it gives fans and collectors an affordable way to start building their photography collection. With so many images to choose from, we expect this to be a very popular auction.”
