On the evening of November 11th, Sotheby’s in New York will be holding an auction featuring a dizzying array of remarkable artworks created by some of art history’s most prominent figures.  We’re curious to see how much art collectors are willing to spend in order to acquire one of Jasper Johns’ flags (Sotheby’s estimate $15,000,000 to $20,000,000) or a work by Rothko, or Gerhard Richter, or Louis Bourgeois, or Andy Warhol, to name a few.

Sotheby’s Contemporary Art Evening Auction on November 11th will present a collection of spectacular landmarks of recent art history. Surveying the major developments of Contemporary Art over the past six decades, this auction will offer truly rare and prestigious exemplars of Abstract Expressionism, Pop Art, Minimalism and Postmodernism alongside various groundbreaking paintings and sculptures by the most influential artistic innovators of our times.

We’ll know the auction results next week.  Until then, let’s take some time to ooh and aah over this exclusive preview of the fantastic Shlumberger Collection…
