Yves Saint Laurent's Duchamp Perfume Bottle Fetches $11 Million « artlovesmoney

Artlovesmoney provides the catalog description for Duchamp's Belle Haleine, Eau de Voilette, which sold at Christie's yesterday for $11 million, trouncing its $1 million estimate: “Dada scholar Francis Naumann describes Duchamp's readymade perfume bottle, which features a Man Ray photograph of Duchamp in drag, as “one of the most provocative works of art ever made, a simple bottle of perfume whose liquid long ago evaporated, but whose essence, to be sure, will continue to influence artists long into the future.””
