A top price for Elaine Sturtevant

In May 2015 Christies in New York held the auction Post-War and Contemporary Art Evening Sale, which included the work Warhol Diptych by Elaine Sturtevant. Here, the upper estimate of USD 5,000,000.00 was slightly exceeded - the artwork found a new owner for USD 5,093,000.00 (€ 4,632,526.83). With this result, Warhol Diptych is even the most expensive work of art by Elaine Sturtevant that we have observed at auctions so far.
