Special Notice

On occasion, Christie's has a direct financial interest in the outcome of the sale of certain lots consigned for sale.

This is known as a minimum price guarantee. This is such a lot.

Lot Essay

"I used to drink Campbell's Soup. I used to have the same lunch every day, for twenty year, I guess, the same thing over and over again. Someone said my life has dominated me; I like the idea. I used to want to live at the Waldorf Towers and have soup and a sandwich, like that scene in the restaurant in the Naked Lunch."
