Pop Goes the Auction

As evidenced by two auctions this week, there is a high demand for Andy Warhol and other pop artists.

On Monday, November 8, Phillips de Pury held its inaugural “Carte Blanche” auction. Pury invited an outsider, Private art adviser and former Christie’s employee Philippe Segalot, to curate the event. Andy Warhol’s “Men in Her Life” was sold for $63 million, the second-highest price ever paid for a Warhol at auction. Read about Monday’s auction here
