Cindy Sherman‘s exquisite “Untitled #153,” a color coupler print from 1981 featuring the artist as a cashmere-clad ingénue, seductively reclining with a crumpled personal ad in one hand, sold to New York dealer Philippe Segalot for $3,890,500 (est. $1.5-2 million). The underbidder was New York dealer Per Skarstedt. The sellers had acquired the print, from an edition of ten, in 1981, when Sherman’s market was in its infancy. Another later version from 1985 sold at Phillips de Pury last November for $2,770,500, the previous high. Source
