It was a whirlwind week for auction houses across the city. After raking in big money from Part I of their Contemporary Art sale, Phillips de Pury is opening its door this morning (10 a.m.) for Part II, aka the much cheaper auction—which by normal people standards—is actually still pretty expensive. There probably won’t be “well dressed women” scouring for sugar daddy’s, but do expect a collection of peculiar pieces by some of the usual suspects: Tom Sachs, Warhol, Basquiat, others. Click below for some more samples including a grade school looking subway map, a reworked cover of the New York Post, a Murakami beach ball and some other primitive art world gems.
