Alec Baldwin Buys a Clifford Ross

Mr. Baldwin, at the event.

Alec Baldwin bought Hurricane LI (2008) by Clifford Ross at the Summer Gala Benefit Auction for Guild Hall in East Hampton Friday. After a good-natured bidding war — and is there any other kind with Alec? The man is playful. A joy to bid against, really  — the work eventually went to the actor for $70,000.

“I have a room in my apartment that I’m decorating all in black-and-white photography,” Mr. Baldwin told Bloomberg. Presumably he means his new place downtown.
