  • Warhol works make $100m in US auction

    Two works from Andy Warhol's Death and Disaster series have sold for a combined $100m (£59m).

    Race Riot, 1964 - inspired by pictures of a notorious civil rights protest in Birmingham, Alabama - went for $62.9m (£37.3m) at Christie's in New York.

    The 1962 painting White Marilyn, completed shortly after Marilyn Monroe took her life, sold for $41m (£24m).

    Alongside works by Mark Rothko and Barnett Newman, the paintings helped Christie's set a new auction record.
