The Andy Warhol Collection, April 23 - May 3, 1988 (6 bøger i kassette)

In late April of 1988, Sotheby's New York headquarters on York Avenue was abuzz with activity. After months of diligent research and cataloguing, a team of staff members, drawn from 27 different curatorial departments, had completed the preparations for one of the most important and talked-about sales of the decade. A significant portion of property belonging to the estate of Andy Warhol, who had passed away the previous year, was poised for the auction block. The deluge of artwork, clothing, decor and other artifacts on offer had been parsed into no less than 10,000 lots. Even Warhol's 1974 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow was up for grabs.

The exhibition leading up to the spirited 10-day auction drew huge crowds, as fans of Warhol came from far and wide to marvel at the artist's rambling, eclectic collections of everything from his contemporaries' artwork to Art Deco jewellery to cookie jars. "If I remember correctly, I think because of the wide-ranging, insatiable way that Andy collected, the only department at Sotheby's – and we have a lot of specialist departments – that was not involved was Judaica," recalls Leslie Prouty, a senior vice president at Sotheby's who joined the Contemporary Art Department in 1982. The goal of the sale was to raise funds for the then-fledgling Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. Sotheby's had estimated the proceeds would total $15 million or more. The sale would go on to generate $25 million.
