Randolph Sale (UPDATE)

Despite considerable opposition, Randolph College's deaccessioned Tamayo has just sold for more than $7 million at Christie's. Lee Rosenbaum breaks the news.

UPDATED: Lots more from Christa Desrets in The Lynchburg News & Advance today. The buyer was "an anonymous phone bidder."

And further thoughts from Heather Hope: "I still firmly stand by my opinion that if Randolph College feels that selling these works is necessary to support the college's mission, then they should be permitted to do so."
