ARTSY A LA CARTE-SY ; $108M IN MODERN WORKS UP FOR BID
The most anticipated painting on sale is Edward Hopper's "Chair Car," which depicts several people sitting in a train and is expected to sell for $15 million.
"People relate to this painting," said Cappellazzo. "It captures so clearly the metropolitan life and the relationship of anonymity and people in the city."
More than 800 people, including dedicated Hopper collector and comic movie star Steve Martin, are expected to show up to duke it out over the art.
If your art budget is a mere $10,000 or so, Christie's also plans to auction lesser-known works on Thursday.
