New York Times: Christie’s Auction Results That WOW

The yellow, green and red painting — “Abstraktes Bild (809-2),” from three seven-foot-high 1994 abstracts that Mr. Clapton had bought at Sotheby’s in 2001 for $3.4 million — sold to the Richard Gray Gallery of Chicago and New York for $22.1 million with fees, having been estimated at $18 million to $25 million.

“The whole world has been asking itself, ‘How is the art market going to do?’” the New York dealer Robert Mnuchin said. “It was a very respectable sale.”

Could it be the weirdest gift ever?

John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s son Sean revealed that Andy Warhol gave him the fright of his life when he bought him a taxidermy cat as a gift for his eighth birthday.

Miya’s treatment of surface requires an extraordinary level of ability, knowledge and skill, and her technique combines subtlety and understatement with a planetary scope of view.

“I think of artwork as part of a dialogue or conversation as opposed to a soliloquy. The artist makes a work and the viewer responds. I very much like to think of the making of art as participating in this form of communication, one that occurs whether I myself am physically present or not. I like the idea of a silent/non-verbal communication.” – Miya Ando
