Pop Art may have been an easy target for a visual gag in 1964, but today Lichtenstein, Johns, and--is that Morandi?--well, the first two have become huge draws in today's Postwar and Contemporary Art auction market, while Morandi is relegated to the lucrative Impressionist and Modern sales. This Kovarsky cover rings exceedingly true for the big-ticket auctions that just took place this week. Except for the hats. Almost no one wears hats at an auction today.
