"The Bed" Sells For $4.3 Million

We mentioned that The Bed was being auctioned with a price estimate of an absurd $2 million. It ended up selling for $4.3 million!

A bit more background on The Bed:

"Emin's bed was first shown in Tokyo, where the Japanese customs attempted to destroy it as it arrived in the country, and then in New York. After being nominated for the 1999 Turner prize, and causing a subsequent media frenzy, it caused visitor numbers to Tate Britain to hit a record high"
1999 = 2014
