Tom Ford auctioned off his Warhol.
An Andy Warhol work (shown) sold by designer Tom Ford has fetched more than $32 million (£21.5 million) at Sotheby's. [...] The other star lot was an untitled 1961 Mark Rothko, which sold for $31.44 million (£21.17 million) including commission, beating the $25 million (£16.8 million) high estimate. - Source
I'm not a big fan of Warhol, although I have a socio-anthropological interest in him, his work, and his cult. I do like Rothko however. Amazing what art sells for these days, more amazing, how much money some people have.
How absolutely nothing everything is...
