With Russell Crowe and Danielle Spencer’s divorce nearly finalized after their separation five years ago, Crowe is celebrating by putting up 200 personal items he acquired during their nine years together in an auction called “The Art of Divorce.”

The 53-year-old actor is purging his sizable collection of movie memorabilia, clothing, artwork, watches, furniture and guitars in the cheeky sale. The most expensive piece in the collection is a 1890 Leandro Bisiach violin Crowe used in his 2003 movie Master and Commander, estimated to be worth between $110,000 and $140,000.

The auction will take place at Sotheby’s Australia on April 7. That date is of particular significance to Crowe, according to the website, as it’s “both the actor’s birthday and wedding anniversary.

Crowe tweeted about the sale back in February, sharing a shot of the print cover of the Sotheby’s catalogue that shows him dressed in a tuxedo, grinning while raising a celebratory toast to the camera.

News broke of Crowe and Spencer’s split back in October 2012, more than 20 years after the couple met playing lovers in the 1990 movie The Crossing.

The couple, who wed in April 2003, share two children: sons Charles, 13 and Tennyson,  11.

Crowe’s latest film, Boy Erased, is currently in post-production. He stars in the project — about the son of a baptist preacher who is forced to participate in a church-supported gay conversion program — alongside fellow Aussie Nicole Kidman and Oscar nominee Lucas Hedges.
