Noel Coward's art collection is to cross the block in a sale at Christie's London on March 19.
The varied collection includes paintings by the playwright himself alongside works from well known British artists, including a major piece by Christopher Wood titled Fishing Village, Cornwall.
That particular work is valued at £70,000-100,000 ($104,983-149,977).
Wood (1901-1930) was a promising young artist who helped found the St Ives School in the 1920s. He succumbed to opium addiction in his later years and ended up throwing himself under a train.
His work proved influential on other St Ives artists and now regularly achieves six figure sums at auction. The Blue Boat (1929), for example, made £133,250 ($217,064) at Christie's in 2011.
Among Coward's own paintings is an image of a naked man sunbathing next to some nuns.
Will Porter, senior director of modern British art at Christie's, explained to the Guardian: "It is risqué in a very English, 1930s way.
"His paintings are great fun ... they reflect his sense of humour. There are some very witty works".
Also included are pieces from John Nash and Edward Seago.
