Mark Rothko's fiery "Orange, Red, Yellow" sold for $86.9 million at Christie's International in New York on May 8.

The 1961 painting was one of 13 artworks being sold from the estate of David Pincus, the retired chairman of apparel manufacturer Pincus Brothers-Maxwell, who died in December 2011. Its price surpassed the artist's previous auction peak of $72.8 million, set in 2007 for a painting from David Rockefeller's collection.
