A living room set and artwork that graced Ludwig von Beethoven's salon goes on the auction block in Paris next week. Dorotheum of Vienna and French auctioneer Jacques Tajan are collaborating on a next-Monday-through-March-7 sale of 19th- and 20th-Century Austrian art objects, including paintings, drawings and etchings by masters Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele and Oskar Kokoschka. The furniture set, which is estimated to sell for at least $10,000, was owned by Beethoven until his death in 1827 and was part of his estate.
