Another strong day for Sotheby's, though maybe not on the scale of the The Scream:
- Andy Warhol's silkscreen Double Elvis sold for $37 million. One of 22 made by Warhol, it's based on a movie still and shows Elvis as a gun-toting cowboy, notes the Guardian.
- Roy Lichtenstein's Sleeping Girl sold for $45 million, setting a record for the artist.
- A one-ton porcelain sculpture by Chinese dissident Ai Weiwei, Sunflower Seeds, sold for $782,500.
- Francis Bacon's Figure Writing Reflected in Mirror sold for $45 million.
