Sotheby's Paddle Call: Got An Extra Ten Or Twenty Million?

Tonight Sotheby's kicks off its new auction series offering up the personal collection of real-estate developer, philanthropist, and avid art collector, A. Alfred Taubman. Oh, and billionaire. Can't forget that one. So yeah, for those in the market for some of the most highly coveted pieces around, from antiquity to contemporary times, here's a little peak of what you may want to get ready to raise that paddle for.

With over 500 works going up on the block - the man did own Sotheby's for some twenty years, and let's just say he must have had a killer discount, best of luck to you in locking down that Rothko!
