Bunny Mellon’s multimillion dollar art is up for auction

Art collectors are raring to get a look at a number of pricey paintings owned by Listerine heiress Bunny Mellon.

Sotheby’s is selling works from the Mellon Family Collection starting Tuesday — including Claude Monet’s 1887 painting “Champ d’iris à Giverny,” with an estimated price of up to $5 million.

There are also paintings by Pissarro, Homer and Delacroix, and many of the works have not been publicly seen for over 50 years.

A previous auction of Mellon possessions brought in $218.1 million in 2014 for the Gerard B. Lambert Foundation.

Bunny died earlier that year at age 103, and her son, Stacy B. Lloyd III, died at age 80 this year.
