Get it for LESS!

On Wednesday, Christie’s had the most successful contemporary art auction EVER…$412 million. And Sotheby’s realized over $375 million on Tuesday, its highest–ever total for an auction of postwar/contemporary works (link to full article). It seems crazy, but over $1 billion in contemporary Art was sold this week (Art Market Monitor Article).

Jeff Koons, “Tulips,” $34,000,000.                                 Harold Feinstein, “Family Cluster,” $1,300 (ARTprojectA).

Gerhard Richter, “Große Teyde-Landschaft,” Est. $15,ooo,ooo.      Michael Manalo, “Secret Society,” starting at $65.
