The Potomack Company auction house in Old Town Alexandria will host the two-day auction in favor of the Washington National Opera.
Fans of late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will soon have the opportunity to bid on her art and memorabilia collection at an auction in Alexandria, Virginia.
The Potomack Company auction house in Old Town Alexandria will host the two-day auction in favor of the Washington National Opera, the company said in a press release Monday.
“Opera was RBG’s passion, and she often attended WNO performances at the Kennedy Center,” the release states.
Ginsberg’s collection of modern art will be auctioned on April 27, and the decorative art and memorabilia from her Supreme Court halls and Watergate residence in DC will go up for auction on April 28.
An Eleanor Davis caricature of Ginsburg, which was placed in the courts of the courts and is signed by the artist “For Justice Ginsberg”; several Pablo Picasso Madoura ceramic pieces; a Maurice De Vlaminck watercolor; a collection of signed Maxey Goodacre bronzes; and Josef Albers serigraphy; and a Max Weber watercolor is among some of the modern treasures that will be displayed at the auction.
Various awards and pieces of recognition she received during her years in the High Court will also be for sale.
You can see the Ruth Bader Ginsburg collection in Potomack’s Old Town Gallery from 12-15. April and 26-27. April. The online catalog for the auction will be published on April 12.
Ginsburg died at the age of 87 after a battle with pancreatic cancer in September 2020. She was the second woman to hold a seat on the Supreme Court after being appointed in 1993. She served for more than 27 years.
