Betty White was an award-winning American actress, comedian, and author. White’s career began during the Golden Age of Television and stretched for seven decades. She was notable for her work on and off camera. The actress was also well-known for supporting LGBTQ+ rights and animal welfare. The upcoming Julien’s Auctions event features collectibles from Betty White’s life and career. One highlight is an oil painting by Sir Henry Edwin Landseer. Waiting For His Master portrays a King Charles spaniel sitting beside a red velvet ottoman. Landseer’s animal paintings were notable for their sentimental aspect and accurate anatomy. The painting was formerly owned by Betty White.
Also showcased is a needlepoint wall hanging completed by Betty White featuring butterflies and birds. During a TGB interview, the interviewer observed needlepoint all around White’s home. When asked about it, White explained, “she and her husband would often relax with their favorite drink and discuss their day, while the actress worked on her needlepoint works.” The available wall hanging depicts exotic birds placed on floral branches. The needlepoint project has a brown border with flower-patterned details. The wall hanging also comes with an image of the actress posing beside the wall hanging, as well as a feature in the October 1974 issue of Woman’s World magazine. The magazine piece on White covers her interest in needlepoint and the available wall hanging. The auction also presents a first draft for the pilot of The Golden Girls teleplay. The television series was a prominent part of White’s acting career. The script comes with a note reading, “Dear Betty-the first draft for your files!!” from her agent. Collectors can explore the entire catalog and register to bid online on Julien’s Auctions’ website.
