“NEW YORK (AFP) – A painting by American pop artist Andy Warhol sold here at auction for 71.7 million dollars… late Wednesday, easily beating the previous record for the artist’s works.

“The 1963 painting, ‘Green Car Crash (Green Burning Car I),’ narrowly missed the record for the most expensive post-war work to sell at auction — a record set Tuesday when a painting by Mark Rothko sold for 72.8 million dollars.”
