Digard to offer Signoret Montand's collection, mementos from Autheuil
The mementos of their private life and careers from their house in Autheuil will tell the story of this mythical couple.

PARIS.- On Monday 26th June, Digard Auction is presenting the collection of Simone Signoret and Yves Montand. The mementos of their private life and careers from their house in Autheuil will tell the story of this mythical couple.

To discover: paintings, furniture, art works, jewellery, scenarios, stage clothes, movies and sound tapes, shooting pictures, awards and gold records, autographs and correspondences between Simone SIGNORET, Yves MONTAND and Edith PIAF, memories from a place they loved and from their daily lives.

The Autheuil house is big. In 1954, the fifty-five miles that separated it from Paris made it feel like it was located on the other side of the world. While looking at it, MONTAND used to say: "There are many 'Battling Joes' and 'dead leaves' in there... It is a house for summer, winter, fall and spring… Many people can live and work in it without disturbing one another, without even meeting one another. It quickly became a community house where people would laugh, but also work very seriously. It is the perfect place for the big 'ambassadeurs' or 'assassins' games, as well as practicing for a performance or writing scenarios and book scripts. It is a lovely house, where those who have come before come back again." --Simone SIGNORET – "Nostalgia Isn’t What It Used to Be"
