The most expensive piece in the auction is Damien Hirst's We've Got Style (The Vessel Collection-Blue), which should bring in around $1 million (nearly a bargain by Hirst standards). Other pieces include Takashi Murakami's 1998 Chaos and Untitled I by Julie Mehretu which is estimated by Sotheby's at $600,000 to $800,000.
The Observer article also addresses the issue of provenance. Will the idea of picking over the remains of Lehman Brothers tempt or turn off potential buyers? The sale was once called the Lehman auction, then it was the Neuberger Berman & Lehman Brothers auction but now it's just the Neuberger Berman auction on the Sotheby's website. Check out the Observer article for more info on some of the price pieces being auctioned off including the Richard Prince painting shown at right.
