More than 50 works of art that once adorned the walls of the Howrey law firm will be sold at auction by Weschler's on Wednesday, June 12.
The art includes abstract works by Washington, D.C., artists Sam Gilliam and Gene Davis, the Wall Street Journal reports at its Bankruptcy Beat blog. Five Gilliam pieces are expected to sell for between $1,000 and $5,000.
Also up for auction next Wednesday is a French movie poster once owned by another defunct law firm, Dewey & LeBoeuf. It is expected to bring $1,000 to $2,000.
