Studio Art: At the auction

Studio Art Yesterday the two big NYC auction houses had sales of modern art featuring record prices for some of the artists we recently studied notably Francis Bacon, who's triptych of friend and artist Freud sold for a record art price of $142.4 million at Christie’s Post War Art Auction.  Take a look through the slideshow at some of the pieces and also check out Banksy's Laugh Now which sold for $485,000 at Phillips Contemporary Auction along with works from Warhol, Murakami, and De Kooning.
