Arshile Gorky, Study in Agony I
(sold for 2.2 mil)
Spotted: Louisa Stude Sarofim, chairman of Houston’s Menil Collection, sitting next to New York art dealer Matthew Marks at Christie’s Auction House yesterday. The two whispered amongst themselves as Marks bought an Agnes Martin, a Gorky and a de Kooning. No scent of death around them.
