Marilyns, and Jackies and Maos.... OH MY!!

Warhol_marilyn_at_christies 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.

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.''

Well..there you go, a Nov'06 MAO Quiz guess from the man who butchered wrote.. I Bought Andy Warhol.

So post your bid soon!! There's only a few days left!

Thats fine, because we all know Leonardo da Vinci is like Apple.

I take exception to your comment about "butchering" I Bought Andy Warhol.

Why don't you contribute something to the art world — instead of criticizing people.

Thanks Richard Polsky for your comment..

But last time I checked.. I think Criticizing IS contributing something to the art world.. Just ask Jerry Saltz. NO?

It also informs people..

Like letting people know your book.. is a total waste of time/bore!
