It either moves you or it doesn't.....


or at $195mm you are tired of watching your investments on CNBC. The expectation was it would go for $200mm. Just so Bruber can have his daily tax outrage, all the proceeds went to charity so a large portion is a tax deduction.

I went to LA to see the first retrospective of Warhol after his death. I always felt seeing a piece here and a piece there that his work was interesting with a solid commercial art vein to his pieces.

After touring the display, if I recall correctly had at least 100 pieces, and my original thoughts were confirmed. Turns out Andy didn't even make a lot of his art. He had a team of screen printers execute many of his ideas. AW was a brilliant businessman who found an audience and defined a period of art.

BTW, one of the "Marilyn"s was at the exhibit and was the star of the show. To me, it is Warhol's seminal and most important piece of art.
