An American forty-by-sixty poster for the Audrey Hepburn film Breakfast at Tiffany's (Jurow-Shepard, 1961). Estimate: $8,000- $12,000.

LOS ANGELES, CA.- Julien’s Auctions, the world-record breaking auction house, announced today that Hollywood: Property from the Osianama Archives will be heading to the auction block March 8, 2018 in Los Angeles and live online. A significant part of the Hollywood category of the Osianama Archives, an outstanding, award-winning collection of some of the world’s most important film memorabilia and artwork, will be available for auction for the first time in history in this spectacular never before seen event.

From a life-size Terminator 3 screen figure to the monstrous Alien Queen’s maquette from Aliens to a gigantic T-rex dinosaur figure from The Lost World: Jurassic Park, the Osianama Archives features iconic production pieces, props and posters from the greatest and most influential films of all time. Some of the most prestigious original artwork representing nearly 100 years of classic Hollywood films by poster design masters Al Hirschfeld, Saul Bass, Alberto Vargas, Jean Mascii, Boris Grinsson, Reynold Brown, Albert Kallis, Tom Jung, Waldemar Świerzy, Andy Warhol and many more will be offered. From the legendary silent films of Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton to the German Expressionism of Fritz Lang, Erich von Stroheim, F.W. Murnau, Josef von Sternberg and Ernst Lubitsch to the glorious horror of Tod Browning, Lon Chaney, Bela Lugosi, Boris Karloff to the screen goddesses Greta Garbo, Carole Lombard, Vivien Leigh, Marlene Dietrich, Joan Crawford, Bette Davis, Rita Hayworth, Katharine Hepburn and Audrey Hepburn to icons and legends, Clark Gable, Alfred Hitchcock, Orson Welles, Humphrey Bogart, Marlon Brando, Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, Stanley Kubrick, Robert De Niro, Clint Eastwood and more, these masterpieces offer the finest in film poster history. In addition, some of Osianama’s historic lobby cards, purchased as part of the Leonard Schrader Collection, will join this Hollywood auction extravaganza. The late filmmaker and screenwriter Leonard Schrader’s astonishing collection and preservation of thousands of rare vintage lobby cards-the movie theater’s film advertisement posters that revolutionized the look of graphics-and other related pieces, spanning the silent film era to Hollywood’s Golden Age, are considered the sole surviving remnants of many long-lost films.

The Osianama Archives is the renowned archive-library-collection of world cinema built and housed by Osian’s, India’s pioneering arts and cultural institution and auction house, founded in 2000 by eminent arts and culture scholar-entrepreneur Neville Tuli. The vast collection curated by Tuli consists of more than 200,000 original objects of production items, film publicity material and memorabilia and serves as an unrivalled center of knowledge, learning, education and cultural history.

“Julien’s Auctions is thrilled to offer the Osianama Archives, the finest and most comprehensive collection of film memorabilia and artwork of the last century,” said Martin Nolan, Executive Director of Julien’s Auctions. “These rare and highly valued objects have served as a landmark for cinema as an art form and cultural reference and is certain to dazzle and delight any serious film memorabilia collector keen to own these pieces of Hollywood movie making history.”
