Geoffrey Raymond, an artist who does annotated pictures of fallen Wall Street icons, has turned his hand to Steven H Davis, the former chairman of stricken US law firm Dewey & LeBoeuf.

Davis recently left his role at the firm – whose London lawyers face an uncertain future – amid a criminal investigation by the Manhattan district attorney.

The painting was done outside Dewey’s New York offices. On his blog, Raymond explains that the black writing is contributions from the general public, the blue from Dewey employees and the red posts from commenters on the US legal blog Above the Law.

The picture will sell for $45,000 (£28,000), but Raymond is offering former Dewey lawyers a discount. “If you approach me with proof that you work or have worked at D&L in the recent past, I would happily reduce it,” he told Above the Law.
