Take a Look at the Blinged-Out Paintings in the Money-Themed Auction at Sotheby’s

By

Having a money-themed art auction is kind of like having a water-themed swim. But hey, "To the Bearer on Demand" — the unreservedly pro-capitalist auction that's going down at Sotheby's in London this July — will send to the block some pretty great works influenced by the love of cash. Or maybe a critique of it? No, no, just kidding! Sorry, that made our head hurt. Forget we mentioned it. Gotta focus. So: You got Warhols, Harings, a work by Beuys, and ... more Warhols. Will it break records, like seemingly every auction did last week? Hey, you have to spend money to make money!
