Nude photographs of Madonna to be auctioned

21 August 2014, 11:53

Los Angeles - Madonna memorabilia including nude photographs of the Queen of Pop will go on sale in November at an auction that will also include some of her most famous outfits and some of her lyrics.

The Marilyn Monroe-inspired gown and jewellery that Madonna donned in her 1984 Material Girl music video will also be up for grabs, Beverly Hills-based Julien's Auctions said  on Tuesday.

Highest bidders will also be able to take home some of the many awards won by Madonna, as well as handwritten notes on concert choreography and working lyrics.

The personal and professional collection includes a day planner from 1988 in which Madonna jotted down notes on everything from dates with her then-husband Sean Penn to an appearance on Late Night with David Letterman.

More risque are negatives and prints of nude photographs taken of the diva for Penthouse magazine.

Fans could even snap up Madonna's 1972 junior high school yearbook and signed checks, as well as a document related to her separation from Penn.

Outfits Madonna wore in movies such as Evita, A League of Their Own and The Next Best Thing will also be on offer.

With price estimates ranging from $600 to $40 000, the auction will take place on 7 and 8 November over the course of four sessions.

The public will be able to get a glimpse of the collection on 3 to 7 November.

Madonna, 56, has sold over 300 million records over the course of her career and is one of the most powerful artists in the world, according to Forbes.
