NEW YORK — Speaking of a hard act to follow… Phillips‘s evening sale commenced just 24 hours after Christie’s record-setting half-billion-dollar result. It proved mildly successful. The boutique-scaled auction house, headquartered on Park Avenue and 57th Street, sold $78,618,000 of contemporary art, with 30 of the 37 lots offered finding buyers. That translates into a buy-in rate by lot of 19 percent and 12 percent by value.

Breathtaking news: Lawrence Schiller’s “Marilyn & Me”
Marilyn for ever! –We pays tribute de Marilyn Monroe by choosing her as effigy of its edition 2012. As one of the greatest of Hollywood’s icons, sexy, sparkling and moving, she is featured in every magazine and newspaper across the globe fifty years after her premature death and “reincarnated” in the recent movie My Week with Marilyn. Step into Marilyn Monroe’s intimacy at the time when the movie Something’s Got to Give was being shot. More than a hundred extraordinary photographs from two of her final films, most of them never seen before, contribute to this unexpected, poignant portrait of Marilyn Monroe that you will read straight through to the end without stopping.
Lawrence Schiller is one of the four photographers still alive having immortalized Marilyn Monroe. Since his book about Marilyn with Norman Mailer was released in 1973 and sold world wide in 16 languages and 6,000,000 copies, he had never published another story about the star. Schiller’s emblematic career as a photojournalist, film director and bestselling author, is marked with this momentous Marilyn Monroe exhibition.
