Diebenkorn and Warhol Lead Heritage Auctions’ Prints & Multiples Sale

Competitive bidding boosts auction’s total past $1.8 million

Richard Diebenkorn High Green, Version II, 1992
DALLAS, Texas (November 1, 2018) — Richard Diebenkorn’s High Green Version II, 1992 sold for $175,000, leading Heritage Auctions’ Modern & Contemporary Art Prints & Multiples Auction to $1,782,025. The auction achieved sell-through rates of 94.42 percent by value and 92.89 percent by lots, making Heritage a market leader in the Prints and Multiples category.

"Heritage does so well with prints and multiples that we’ve added weekly sales starting in November,” Heritage Auctions Modern & Contemporary Art Vice President Frank Hettig said. "Artists like Richard Diebenkorn and Andy Warhol will continue to be featured in our curated biannual signature sales, but our clients have an appetite to round out their collections with prints at all price points.”

Warhol’s market continues to be strong and he was once again a leader in the print sale, with two prints yielding six-figure returns. Andy Warhol Marilyn Monroe (Marilyn), 1967 nearly doubled its high pre-auction estimate when numerous bidders drove its final price to $156,250; Andy Warhol Marilyn Monroe (Marilyn), 1967 brought a similar price of $106,250.
