I Sold Andy Warhol. (Too Soon)

Richard Polsky, Andy Warhol

I Sold Andy Warhol. (Too Soon)


Publication on the artmarket by Richard Polsky. "In 'I Sold Andy Warhol (Too Soon),' Polsky leads the way through this explosive, short-lived period when the 'art world' became the 'art market.' He delves into the behind-the-scenes politics of auctions, the shift in power away from galleries, and the search for affordable art in a rich man's playing field. Unlike most in the art world, Polsky is not afraid to tell it like it is as he negotiates deals for clients in New York, London, and San Francisco and seeks out a replacement for his lost Fright Wig in a market that has galloped beyond his means. A compelling backdoor tell-all about the strange and fickle world of art collecting, 'I Sold Andy Warhol (Too Soon)' takes an unvarnished look at how the industry shifted from art appreciation to monetary appreciation." -- publisher's statement.
