The Headlines
WHAT A NIGHT!  On Thursday evening in New York,  Christie’s  offered up back-to-back marquee auctions that hauled in $831 million.  Angelica Villa  has  a full report  in  ARTnews . The first sale featured a dozen works from the storied collection of the late  Anne Bass , which brought in $363 million, well beyond its $250 million presale estimate. Two  Rothko  paintings accounted for $116 million of that, though they underperformed, while a 1900–03 view of the U.K. Parliament by Monet  earned $75 million, trouncing its $40 million low estimate. Perhaps the biggest surprise of the night, though, came in the second event, devoted to 20th-century art, which saw  Ernie Barnes ’s electrifying painting  Sugar Shack  (1976) go for $15.3 million with fees, adding two zeros to its $150,000 low estimate. Among the artists getting new auction records were  Howardena Pindell  and  Grace Hartigan . Head to  ARTnews  for  all the action .
