Two Andy Warhol images were sold in New York Wednesday for $151 million, breaking pre-sale estimates by millions of dollars.

“Triple Elvis,” a 1963 silkscreen image, sold for about $81 million, after projections that it would draw about $55 million. And the 1953 “Four Marlons” fetched $69.6 million.

These two sales were part of a record-breaking, $852.9 million night at Christie’s New York, setting the all-time high for postwar and contemporary art sales.
