Boxing on

More celebrity news. Two icons have come together to challenge the current recession in the global art market. Warhol’s portrait of the gloved one previously sold in 1984 for $413,000 and yesterday it changed hands for just North of $1.5million. Meanwhile at the Andy Warhol Museum they are still working their way through the time capsules Warhol left behind. Each box is filled with stuff that Warhol dropped stored at the end of each day. Recent discoveries includes a naked poster of Jackie O (seriously) signed by the naked one (again, seriously) and an envelope containing $US17,000.
