Marilyns, and Jackies and Maos.... OH MY!!
It's total Art Auction Mania in NYC this week.. the
herds of sheep crowds at Sothebys Contemporary Art Preview this Sunday afternoon were insane. In total there's almost $80 Million worth of inflated Warhol Marilyns, Jackies and Mao's being dumped on the auction block this week.
(Photo Example : Warhol's, Orange Marilyn, from Christies Lot 32, Estimate $10 to 15 Million)
Here is Bloomberg's Linda Sandler auction preview..
It's filled with some "outstanding" quotes,
but these two were truly too
stupid close to the modern art obsessed heart..so we have to single them out...
``Warhol is like Microsoft,'' said New York private dealer Alberto Mugrabi
- Sotheby's has a small Mao image from David Whitney's collection at a $350,000 top estimate on Nov. 16 that ``could bring $1 million in this current wacky atmosphere,'' Richard Polsky said. ``The whole Mao thing is wild.''
So post your bid soon!! There's only a few days left!
