Well done, Subby.

And the proceeds of course will go to an abortion rights charity like the Lilith Fund or NARAL Pro-Choice America? An organization that stands for equality for women like the National Women's Law Center? The ACLU Women's Rights Project, that Ginsburg used to run before she was appointed to the court?

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a devoted fan of the opera. Now, around 150 items owned by Ginsburg will be auctioned in support of the Washington National Opera.

Welp

Does the provenance of previous ownership increase value?

Would some people, somewhere, pay more because of it? If so, yes.

CNN should skip the Picasso and buy a better headline font.

Oh god why did you point that out. It looks like their printer is running out of ink.

How does a SCOTUS judge afford a Picasso?

I thought they were expensive.

She doesn't. She owned a print. Subby is just trying for outrage.

Money should be given to the GTFOTSCOP Education Fund. To teach octogenarians to retire well before the end of a Democrat president so it can't be blocked by obstructionists in the senate or die with 3x cancer during a wanna-be fascist administration and replaced with perhaps date rape enthusiasts or a christian nut.

We're not talking about a poster of one of his paintings here. Picasso worked in prints. Some of them go for millions.

Easy. Dude lived into his 90s. He* cranked out so much shiat in his later years you could have very easily got some in the 60-70's. I know a few middle class people with Picasso items.

/most of it wasn't even seen by him, it was his studio

Right. I'll help you through the logic.  If any prints sell for millions, "it's a print" is not a reason to assume it is of low value.

*taps blue badge*

Who am I kidding, I can't afford a Picasso.

The auction description is going to be a work of art itself... "The Picasso, not otherwise a noteworthy piece in the artists career, has all of the standard certifications and validations, and is in very good condition. It was most recently owned by a government employee hated by more than half of the country, whose oafish figurehead replaced her before rigeourmortis set in. The ownership and controversy in the periphery should greatly increase the value."

Aunt Sylvia Palpatine was well-off but not wealthy. She owned a signed litho from Picasso's Don Quixote set which was hanging in her guest bathroom. That still is my favorite place in the world to pee.

Tangential...

You can enter the art market for a low entrance fee

I own a dali lithograph.  Signed.

Well, purportedly.  There's all sorts of tales of Dali just signing blanks etc.

Anyway, we have what is purported to be a signed Dali litho and it was surprisingly affordable.  Under 300 dollars even with the auction premium.

It's out there.  Go find it.

As noted by others, it's not clear how expensive those particular pieces were.  But, additionally, her husband also happened to be a very successful lawyer in private practice. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martin_D._Ginsburg

Yep. We looked at buying a Dalí at a show of his signed prints in Rome, in 2000. I think they were asking something like $800. We were on our honeymoon and poor kids, but I was a big fan of Dali. We decided against it. Probably worth triple now, but certainly not "retire early" money.

Picasso regularly "paid" for meals by signing his napkin or plate. His minor "ephemera" is not terribly valuable.
