The schedule of spring auctions in New York City is so packed full that Christieís scheduled the evening sale of the Refco Collection of Contemporary Photography at 5 pm on Friday, May 5, 2006. The 41 lots sold for a total of $5.37 million with 98 percent finding buyers, doubling presale expectations. Top lot was John Baldessariís Beach Scene / Nuns / Nurse (with Choices) (1991), a group of five framed color photos -- including two praying nuns, a Red Cross nurse, and a some body builders (could that be Arnold Schwarzenegger?), all with Baldessariís trademark circles of color blotting out their faces -- that sold for $744,000 (est. $150,000-$200,000), a new record for the artist. The buyer was L&M Arts, according to the Baer Faxt.
