A lawyer says a dispute has been settled between Dr. Jack Kevorkian’s estate and a suburban Boston museum over the ownership of 17 of the assisted-suicide advocate’s paintings.
A suicide machine belonging to Dr. Jack Kevorkian was withdrawn Friday from an auction of the assisted-suicide advocate’s possessions after failing to draw a high enough bid, while 17 of his paintings tied up in a legal dispute with a suburban Boston museum found no takers.
The paintings and other Kevorkian possessions are scheduled to be auctioned Friday at the New York Institute of Technology.
The estate has estimated that the total value of the paintings being held by the museum is $2.5 million to $3.5 million.
The Armenian Library and Museum of America is refusing to surrender 17 paintings and other artwork by assisted-suicide advocate Dr. Jack Kevorkian to his estate for auction.
The suicide machine is among many items, including Kevorkian’s original oil paintings, whick will be sold for the first time during an auction Oct. 27 and 28 at the New York Institute of Technology.
