ART MARKET WATCH
May 15, 2008SOTHEBY’S CONTEMPORARY DOES $362 MILLION
Say one thing about the record-setting auction of 83 lots of contemporary art at Sotheby’s New York
on the evening of May 14, 2008 -- it was l-o-n-g. But no matter. Ever since the original Rambo
movie in 1982, like the film’s hero John Rambo
, your correspondent has been "trained to ignore pain." Long? That sale wasn’t long. Make it longer. One hundred lots, 120 lots, go ahead, it’s all the same to me.
