Art Basel, Andy Warhol & Billy Schenck
Posted July 13th, 2011 by Manitou Galleries
Despite a few nay-sayers, the art world is not in the doldrums. One of the world’s premier art fairs – Art Basel – is reporting strong sales and interest. Galleries were showing (and selling) lots of big-name artists.
Artinfo had this to say about one such work that was for sale: “But the big fish, in these Warhol-crazed days, was the Pop master’s $80 million billboard-scaled ‘One Hundred Fifty Black/White/Gray Marilyns’ from 1980.”
If these are indeed “Warhol-crazed days,” keep on eye out for the new work by Billy Schenck that will be featured at Manitou Galleries Canyon Road on Friday, July 29.
Justified, Billy Schenck
