This Christie’s auction makes Banksy’s $210,000 sale price at Bonhams NY look like child’s play.
“There was no rest for the wicked last night at Christieâ€™s as the market for Contemporary art proved just as strong as ever. The $348.2 million sale was packed with buyers, dealers, and numerous well-dressed women there to watch the action.”
Wait. Was that just a coy way of saying that auction-attending women are gold diggers? |NYSun|
