|"In all, 22 lots, or almost a third of the sale, were guaranteed. One was “Apocalypse Now,” a 1988 painting by Wool, who’s the subject of a retrospective at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. The work spelled “Sell the house sell the car sell the kids” in black on white. It fetched $26.5 million, more than three times Wool’s previous record. Art dealer Christophe van de Weghe bought the work for a client."
Great fucking painting, but that's a crazy number! New art-world order!
Arguably wool's best painting, but I'm sure vintage kassay will be nipping at his heals in short order.
