You can get your hands on a Picasso that Lauren Bacall owned and many more items the movie legend owned.

Legendary Hollywood actress Lauren Bacall died at the age of 89 in August. Now her collection of art, jewelry and furniture will be auctioned off. Among the art is a Picasso, a Miro and two Henry Moore sculptures.

The 700-piece collection will be auctioned off by Bonhams in New York in March of 2015. The value of the Bacall Collection is estimated at $3m.

Bonham highlights that Lauren Bacall was a huge fan of Henry Moore. According to Bonhams' announcement, Bacall recalled the first conversation she shared with the artist: "The operator said Henry Moore was on the phone. I could not believe it. I said, 'Is that really Henry Moore?' and he said, 'Is that really Lauren Bacall?'" When she finally visited the artist at his studio in Much Hadham, Hertfordshire, the Hollywood star was herself star-struck: "It was and will be ever a high point of my life ... [it was the] realization of a dream."

This shows that Bacall collected art with a lot of passion. The auction will be must for Bacall fans and fans of old Hollywood. Several items are from her Los Angeles home which Lauren Bacall shared with her first husband, Humphrey Bogart.
