New York Auction Season. Silver Car Crash (Double Disaster) by Andy Warhol. November 2013. Sotheby’s. Nice day, Yareah friends.
On 13 November 2013 Sotheby’s will present Silver Car Crash (Double Disaster) by Andy Warhol as the outstanding highlight of the New York auction season. At over 8 ft. by 13 ft., the monumental painting is one of only four Car Crash works of this scale in the pivotal Death and Disaster series and the only one remaining in private hands. The work, which boasts distinguished provenance including Gunter Sachs, Charles Saatchi, and the legendary Swiss dealer Thomas Ammann, has been in the same collection since 1988 and has been seen in public only once in the past 26 years. Silver Car Crash (Double Disaster) is estimated to achieve in excess of $60 million and goes on view at Sotheby’s in London on 12 October before the New York exhibition opens on 1 November.
