Works of art, furniture, dishes, linen, clothes and knick-knacks: all the furniture in the house of actor Jean-Claude Brialy in Eygalières, in the Bouches-du-Rhône, will be sold at auction on Saturday.
"It was a friend's house, a joyful house, a pretty summer house where Jean-Claude Brialy and his companion lived during their vacation," said Valérie Payet, co-tutor of the companion of the actor who died in May 2007, Bruno Finck.

The house has already been sold, said the ex-host of Canal +, and all the funds collected during this sale must be used to create an artists' house in the residence of Monthyon, in Seine-et -Marne, where Jean-Claude Brialy died at the age of 74, and where Bruno Finck lives today.
The sale organized by the Montpellier Languedoc auction house in Eygalières itself, in the Alpilles, about fifty kilometers from Aix-en-Provence, consists of 338 lots, estimated between 15 and 1,000 euros.
Among the lots, portraits or a vase made by actor Jean Marais, many paintings, but also a canopy bed in walnut, table service, bottles of wine or champagne. The furniture for Jean-Claude Brialy's Parisian apartment had already been sold in 2013.
