A strong evening at Sotheby’s and a strong evening for Contemporary and Post War Art, as an early Andy Warhol sold for $43.7 million yesterday.

Carol Vogel’s report on the night in today’s New York Times is well worth the read.

Micheal Appleton’s photograph of the phone bidding, with the Warhol lot in the background, is quite compelling as well.
