Christie’s Auction House
After a lawsuit by the estate of late New York City artist Jean-Michel Basquiat suggested some of the works may be fakes, Christie’s auction house has removed one piece for review.
“Three Studies of Lucian Freud” was purchased for $142.4 million at Christie’s postwar and contemporary art sale on Tuesday night.
On Tuesday night there was an auction of royal proportions in Midtown. Christie’s was selling off Elizabeth Taylor’s “legendary jewels,” and the bidding, as expected, went through the roof.
Christie’s Auction House is hosting an exhibit of Hollywood legend Elizabeth Taylor’s possessions from Saturday through December 12, when the auction begins.
