Lehman Brothers Office Art Up For Auction
This is just the first of a couple of auctions. On December 6, Freeman's will sell off 30 lots of European fine paintings from the Lehman collection. Next year, on February 12, another 500 lots or so lots will go up for sale. This collection is not part of the personal collection of Dick Fuld, the former CEO of Lehman, and his wife, Kathy. The Fulds sold a group of 16 artworks through Christie's last November for around $13.5 million. The piece shown at right, Roy Lichenstein's I Love Liberty, is a 1982 colored screenprint numbered 37/250.
