Next Tuesday, Sotheby’s will offer a Frida Kahlo portrait by Nina Con Collar that was only discovered earlier this year. The estimate is $1.5 to $2 million.

Speaking of Sotheby’s, Edvard Munch’s Girls on the Bridge sold last night for $54.5 million.

Art doesn’t have power, but it does have value, because it provides solace, says Gerhard Richter. (Huffington Post)
