Frank Sinatra may be best remembered for his velvety voice, booze-fueled partying and associations with some of the most beautiful women in Hollywood. But he was also a romantic husband to Barbara, his wife of 22 years, an engaged citizen who befriended several US presidents, and a painter who embraced abstraction.
Glimpses into Ol’ Blue Eyes’ life — the public persona and his more private side — will be on display at Sotheby’s upcoming New York sale of the estate of Barbara Sinatra (who passed away last year) in December. Drawn from their residences in Beverly Hills and Malibu, and the house Barbara purchased in Rancho Mirage, California after her husband’s death in 1998, the more than 200 lots range from professional memorabilia to personal items that cast a new light on the performer.
