On October 22nd, the Holiday House NYC benefit for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation had its kick off party at the Academy Mansion, where the show house takes place every year. It's a nice gathering for the people and companies from all the architecture and interior decor related industries involved, before they start the hard, exhausting work of putting each of the rooms together.

Holiday House will run from November 21st to December 18th, with their Gala Opening on November 20th, which I already covered and will be posting in the near future with a link to this article as well.

On November 10, Chrisite's New York had a veritable mob scene in their premises on Rockefeller Center with their preview of the kind of art even the MoMA would find difficult putting together in a special exhibit. I literally had to wait till the last half hour, when the event was winding down, in order to take a few shots of the extraordinary amount of art being auctioned off. A few of the works being sold were Warhols, Basquiats, Harrings, a Lichtenstein, Indianas, a Stella, a Cindy Sherman and a Koons Balloon Dog, displayed on the sidewalk, and chosen by Christie's as the logo for the up coming auction, with canvas bags and t-shirts featuring the sculpture, and real ballon dogs, being given away to a very delighted public.

On 12 November 2013 this painting, "Three Studies of Lucian Freud" set the record
as the most expensive piece of art ever auctioned, selling for $142,405,000
