Big Fight erupts at Christie’s over Andy Warhol!

Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts/Artists Rights Society (ARS), New York, via Christie's "Self-Portrait," by Andy Warhol.

…via friend of this site Jesse Barlow. A bidding war, described as both tense and amusing broke out at Christie’s auction house last night. Brett Gorvy, of Christie’s and private dealer Philippe Ségalot fought hard for their respective, anonymous  clients. Gorvy’s client won, with a price tag of $38.4 million for the sky blue 4-panel self portrait. For the New York Times story, click here.

  1. What you got just is not a “hammer price”. It already includes some fees.
    Best, Michael
