The Duchess Considers . . .

LA Modern Auction
Yesterday's auction was very lively.  The Reg Butler piece, estimated to bring $20,000 to $30,000, went for $100,000 to a floor bidder; the crowd erupted in cheers.  By a happy accident the Duchess was outbid on James Rosenquist's "Art Gallery" (shown immediately below) . . .


but she did win this Jacques Lipschitz piece, "The Bull and the Condor".  Very exciting!  A few more lots are available post-auction at http://www.lamodern.com/
