BEVERLY HILLS, CA.- Julien's Auctions, the world's premier celebrity and entertainment auction house, announces the exclusive auction of Property From The Collection of Ronnie and Jo Wood, an exceptional array of fine and decorative art, antiques, music memorabilia, and personal property being offered at auction on Saturday, October 27th, 2012. This impressive collection of property from the family home of Rolling Stones guitarist and two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for fans, investors, museums and collectors alike to invest in this unique offering.

The Wood collection features an assortment of memorabilia from the Rolling Stones, Faces, and Ronnie Wood’s solo career both as a musician and an artist, spanning over four decades. Some of the key music-related highlights of the Wood Collection are stage worn leather jackets and clothing. Also offered are two Ronnie Wood custom painted Fender Stratocasters, one with the body depicting a Rolling Stones recording session ($4,000-$8,000).

For the Rolling Stones collectors, there is tour clothing, backstage passes and tour ephemera from various Rolling Stones tours of the 1990’s and 2000’s, collectible Rolling Stones books, guitar picks, vinyl record albums, and other Rolling Stones memorabilia which Jo collected over the years. Other highlights include a Mick Jagger handwritten note to Wood ($200-$400), a twice signed Mick Jagger Rolling Stones poster ($400-$600), and a cardboard cutout in the form of a guitar body inscribed "To Ronnie from Keith,” describing a guitar Richards commissioned for Wood as a Christmas gift ($200-$300). Portraits of Keith Richards, Eric Clapton, and Bob Dylan are among some of the artwork offered by Wood, a celebrated visual artist and painter ($800-$1,200 each).

The Wood collection also includes fine antiques, furniture and decorative art from Holmwood, the magnificent Surrey countryside estate shared by Ronnie and Jo Wood. The resplendent décor combined a modern Rock ‘n Roll aesthetic with stately 19th century antiques and fine art including an Erard harp ($4,000-$5,000), a Victorian Mahogany dining table ($4,000-$6,000), and a pair of Aubusson tapestry entre fenetres ($8,000-$10,000). Also offered is a collection of British sporting artwork including a bronze jockey statue by Dame Elisabeth Frink ($65,000-$85,000), Shark and his Trainer Price, from the studio of George Stubbs ($45,000-$55,000), and other equestrian paintings by Richard Roper ($20,000-$25,000), and Edwin Loder of Bath ($6,000-$8,000). Other fine paintings in the sale are The Coronation of Saint Cosmos and Saint Damian from the Circle of Pietro Malambra ($12,000-$18,000), The Flower Seller by John William Hennessey ($25,000-$30,000), and works by James Arthur O’Connor and Sir William Orpen.

The sale includes an array of decorative statues, masks and furnishings collected from all over the world during various Rolling Stones tours, along with a traveling case containing a double burner electric stove used to make family meals while on the road. Other unique offerings from this collection include a set of nine original John Lennon and Steven Verona cartoon drawings used in The Beatles’ first music video ($1,500-$2,500), a sterling silver Theo Fennell soda siphon ($8,000-$10,000), and a slot machine by Pierre Abel-Nau, circa 1913 ($3,000-$4,000).

The auction comes ahead of the launch of Jo Wood’s first autobiography. Her memoirs, which will be released in February of next year, will reveal her tales as a wife of a Rolling Stone. A portion of the proceeds from the auction benefits MusiCares, a nonprofit organization of The Recording Academy that provides emergency financial assistance and addiction recovery resources to music people in need.
