A prized 1963 Andy Warhol painting that captures the immediate aftermath of a car crash sold for $10



A prized 1963 Andy Warhol painting that captures the immediate aftermath of a car crash sold for $105 million Wednesday at a New York City auction, shattering the record for the famed pop artist amid a spending frenzy at the high end of the art world.
The 8- by 13-foot painting titled “Silver Car Crash (Double Disaster)” depicts a twisted body sprawled across a car’s mangled interior. It has only been seen once in public in the past 26 years.
The buyer wasn’t immediately identified.
The previous Warhol auction record was set in 2007 when “Green Car Crash (Green Burning Car I)” sold for $71.7 million.
Another iconic Warhol, “Coca-Cola (3),” sold for $57.2 million Tuesday at Christie’s auction house, and his portrait of Elizabeth Taylor titled “Liz (hash)1 (Early Colored Liz)” sold for $20 million Wednesday.
A Willem de Kooning abstract painting in red, yellow and white called “Untitled V,” not seen in public since 1980, sold for $24.8 million Wednesday.
The sale fell short of the record for the artist’s works, set Tuesday at Christie’s with the sale of his “Untitled VIII” from 1977.
None of Wednesday’s buyers were identified.
Over the past 10 days, auction houses around the world have presided over bids totaling nearly $2 billion for art and jewelry, Sotheby’s said.

Andy Warhol painting sells at auction for record $105m



A prized 1963 Andy Warhol painting that captures the immediate aftermath of a car crash sold for 105 million US dollars (94 million US dollars excluding tax) on Wednesday at a New York City auction.
It shattered the record for the famed pop artist amid a spending frenzy at the high end of the art world.
The eight- by 13-foot (3.96-metre) painting titled “Silver Car Crash (Double Disaster)” depicts a twisted body sprawled across a car’s mangled interior.
It has only been seen once in public in the past 26 years.
The buyer was not immediately identified.
The previous Warhol auction record was set in 2007 when “Green Car Crash (Green Burning Car I)” sold for 71.7 million US dollars.
Another iconic Warhol, “Coca-Cola (3),” sold for 57.2 million US dollars on Tuesday at Christie’s auction house, and his portrait of Elizabeth Taylor titled “Liz (hash)1 (Early Coloured Liz)” sold for 20 million US dollars on Wednesday.
A Willem de Kooning abstract painting in red, yellow and white called “Untitled V,” not seen in public since 1980, sold for 24.8 million US dollars (22 million US dollars excluding tax) on Wednesday.
The sale fell short of the record for the artist’s works, set on Tuesday at Christie’s with the sale of his “Untitled VIII” from 1977.
None of Wednesday’s buyers were identified.
The Warhol record came just a day after the most expensive work of art ever sold at auction went for 142.4 million US dollars to conclude six minutes of feverish bidding at Christie’s.
The hefty price tag for a 1967 Francis Bacon triptych called “Three Studies of Lucian Freud” shattered the previous world record – nearly 120 million US dollars paid for Edvard Munch’s “The Scream” at a 2012 Sotheby’s sale.
Christie’s said the winning bid went to New York City’s Acquavella Galleries.
It is believed that the gallery was buying it for an unidentified client.
Over the past 10 days, auction houses around the world have presided over bids totalling nearly two billion US dollars for art and jewellery, Sotheby’s said.
Christie’s said Tuesday’s sale brought in more than 691.5 million US dollars, the highest total for any single auction in history.
