    The Associated Press reports that paintings, jewelry and fashions belonging to the late Elizabeth Taylor have sold for more than $183 million.

    Christie's auction house says all of the 1,817 lots offered sold at auctions in New York and London, some at 50 times their pre-sale estimates!

    The biggest cash raker? Vincent van Gogh's landscape "Vue de l'asile et de la Chapelle de Remy," which once hung in Taylor's Bel Air home. Chic. And pricy. It sold for $16 million! A sale of 38 paintings in London on Tuesday and Wednesday raised $24.6 million.

    Liz had lots of stuff.

    What item of Elizabeth Taylor's would you want to own if you had the means?
