More than 18, 500 items from the life of legendary actress-singer-producer-director Barbra Streisand will go on the auction block Saturday.

The sale will feature furniture, art, costumes, personal clothing and other memorabilia from Streisand’s original New York apartment, her Carolwood home in Beverly Hills, and her Malibu Ranch house.

These items will cross the Atlantic on special exhibit on board the Queen Mary 2 and be auctioned at the historic Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills.

Highlights from Streisand's collection include a Dirk Van Erp table lamp, an L&JG Stickley china cabinet, as well as some of the first antiques she bought as a young woman in New York City. Artwork up for auction include a painting by Kees van Dongen, a group of Edward Curtis photographs and a number of American school floral and genre scenes. Among the other offerings is a selection of Americana furnishings, Art Deco fixtures, Oriental rugs and Native American baskets.

Streisand, known for her fashion flare, is also auctioning off designer fashions from the likes of Donna Karen to Christian Dior.

In addition, the collection includes the pink robe she wore in the film “The Way We Were” and ensembles from “Meet The Fockers,” “Funny Lady,” “On a Clear Day,” “Yentl,” “Nuts,” and “Prince of Tides,” as well as gowns from her 1994 and 2000 concert tours.

Prices range from a few hundred dollars to several thousand dollars.

All proceeds from the auction will go to the Streisand Foundation, which champions human rights and humanitarian causes around the world.
