Estimate: 10 to 15 million.
Christie’s Tuesday post-war and contemporary art evening sale is estimated at between $271 million and $373 million. Highlights include Warhol’s “Liz,” estimated at up to $35 million; a pair of Rothko abstracts, estimated at up to $30 million apiece; and Lucian Freud’s portrait of his sleeping daughter, “Ib and Her Husband,” estimated at $15 million or more.
I'm talking about art buyers and choice they have to buy artworks now.
