In brief: Legal paintings to go under the hammer

A Picasso, a Henry Moore, and a series of legal scenes by the French turn-of-the-century artist Jean-Louis Forain, are among works owned by the late Lord Goodman which are coming up for auction soon. Lord Goodman's collection of 60 paintings, prints and drawings goes under the hammer at Bonhams auctioneers on 26 June. The leading lawyer and high profile political adviser began his collection while he was still at university and continued to acquire works of art throughout his life. Among the most valuable paintings in the collection is Picasso's wash drawing Le Mendiant, valued at up to £40,000.
