Warhol ‘Crash,’ Steve Cohen’s Richter Lift Sotheby’s Sale

Andy Warhol led Sotheby’s biggest auction as the Pop Art icon’s silk-screen painting “Silver Car Crash (Double Disaster)” sold for $105.4 million in New York.

Last night’s $380.6 million contemporary-art sale was just short of the high presale estimate of $394.1 million. Auction records were established for seven artists, including Warhol, Cy Twombly, Agnes Martin and Martin Kippenberger.
