In the aftermath of last Wednesday's Christie's auction which set numerous records for artists Jackson Pollock, Roy Lichtenstein and Jean-Michel Basquiat, boutique auction house Phillips made a little noise with an Andy Warhol painting of Marilyn Monroe.
One of Andy's famous works, ‘Four Marilyns’ has managed to sell at Phillips auction for a price of $34 million recently. A director of the Gagosian Gallery, Victoria Gelfand was lucky bidder who won the race amongst 3 others, who were aggressive for this particular piece of artwork. Philips Auction house is known to have purchased this artwork from Manhattan based art dealer Robert Mnuchi last year.
