Hot Dog Row by Wayne Thiebaud
by sabine7 / May 12, 2010

Wayne Thiebaud is great. Hot dogs, at the right moment, can also be great. So a row of hot dogs by Wayne Thiebaud is even greater. Until you see the price this mixed media work is estimated to bring at the current Artnet auction: $225,000 - $325,000. Hold the relish. However, for lighter fare, there 's a nice shot of Alexander McQueen and Isabella Blow by David LaChapelle. Or Keith Haring all Haring'ed out snapped by Annie Leibovitz. And seeing the words "Household gloss on plastic skull" just above an estimate of $55,000-75,000 does bring a smile to one's face - we're just not sure why. Peruse these offerings and more at Artnet; only 12 days left to bid.
