I Sold Andy Warhol (too soon)...

    I'm currently reading, "I Sold Andy Warhol. (too soon)" by Richard Polsky. For any of you that have ever been intrigued by how someone acquires artwork for $1,500 from an average artist to a $2,000,000 Andy Warhol, would be amazed if you knew what really occurs 'behind-the-scenes'!

    Mr. Polsky tells it like its is &
    delves into what it's like to search for affordable art in a rich man's market. At one point, Richard Polsky decided to put his much-loved, hard-won Warhol, "Fright Wig," up for auction at Christie's; the market for contemporary art was robust & he was hoping to turn a profit. His instinct seemed to be on target: his picture sold for $375,000. But if only Polsky had waited....

    (Below) - Self-portrait (Fright Wig) by Andy Warhol (1986).
    Estimated Price = $1,500,000-$2,000,000.
    The portrait was finished in the months preceding his death.
