so did the painting "flag" by jasper johns go beyond the estimate? yes it did-$36,000,000.00.
what can you say- just amazing.
fyi-just several photos (courtesy of g. feller photography) of my paintings collected by the new jackson laboratory for genomic medicine.
this is your last chance-sotheby's contemporary art evening auction is on tonight, 6:30 in nyc-just in case you wanted to bid on this iconic painting by an american master. for those of you who paint with encaustic here is a good closeup of the painting showing the brush strokes and the one other fact that i learned is that the painting was actually done on a silk flag. being a small painting it may not set any records but you never know what might happen in the art world.
