18" of rubber

Readers relying upon NeuroCooking for guidance on investing in art may know that we have never incorrectly forecast the outcome of an auction for a major contemporary work. With that sterling record in mind, we confidently predict that at an upcoming auction at Sotheby's, a small Claes Oldenburg piece - an "inverted q", in rubber, one of an edition of twelve, eighteen inches high – a rare Oldenburg not requiring a vast outdoor expanse for siting – will not be a bargain. The auction house's estimate is $30-40k; the NeuroCooking estimate is $100k. And we've never been wrong.
