    With a pandemic, war, and famine raging on, it's nice to know certain people still have obscene amounts of money to toss around. And with the toilet paper shortages, it amazes me that nobody has come up yet with Warhol illustrated TP sheets at a million dollars apiece.

    I'm astonished by the pricing these days. A lot of speculation in the art world & plenty of money floating around to be sure

    I saw that, that's fantastic. Man Ray was one of the greats. And it will keep its value unlike NTFs and other modern types of artworks won't fade like some color images ..

    It had been estimated to go for $5-7M.

    Compare this to the current Christie’s auction of AA and both Weston’s original prints. It ends on the 24th and expected selling ranges are a pittance compared to this.

    Why the drastic disparity?
