The big money painting is behind the desk...
This super early and rare Vija Clemins knife and dish painting is estimated at $300,000 TO $500,000
The still life with the Mouille lamp under the Clemins is interesting too. It has amazing depth. 
Seriously, those Billy Al Bengston paintings are way cool.

 There's Bengston now.
