Diamond Dust

Diamond Dust
Grapes D.D.-Andy Warhol

I still have my youth, I have my health, but I don’t have wealth. Wine collecting is typically reputed to be a sport reserved for the rich, in a similar realm as art collecting, and often times they go hand-in-hand. They like to call it “high culture” and I like to call it “I wish I didn’t have student loans.”

So when you take 6 autographed Warhol screenprints of brightly-colored grapes and combine it with a Christie’s auction, naturally, you’re bound to attract swarms of deep pockets to the equation. The framed and signed prints in the auction held 2 weeks ago in New York, entitled “Grapes D.D.” were produced in 1979 and feature different varietals of grapes-from Merlot and Chardonnay. While Christie’s had tagged the collection to sell between $99,000 to $120,000, it didn’t reach much higher than the low-end estimate and sold for $104,500.

Not quite as high as they had anticipated, but high enough to assume that the bidder most likely doesn’t have student loans.
