DALLAS, TX.- Hundreds of bidders competed for an exceptional assortment of works in Heritage Auctions' Modern & Contemporary Prints & Multiples Auction, which included prints from the estate of John Hutcheson. The sale was enormously popular, as buyers snapped up 99 percent by value and 97 percent of the available lots.

Three of the top lots were done by 20th-century pop artist Roy Lichtenstein; five were by American pop art icon Andy Warhol.

"Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol are iconic artists whose work always has sparked significant competition among bidders," Heritage Auctions Modern & Contemporary Art Director Holly Sherratt said. "But the fact that they snapped up more than 99 percent (by value) of what we offered shows that the demand for pieces like these is as strong as ever."

Claiming top-lot honors was Portfolio 11 Pop Artists, Volume II, which realized $237,500. The portfolio includes works by assorted artists, including legendary pop artists Jim Dine, Peter Phillips, James Rosenquist, Lichtenstein, Warhol, Allen Jones, Allan D'Arcangelo, Gerald Laing, John Wesley, Tom Wesselmann, Mel Ramos and more. Included among the 11 prints were iconic works such as Warhol's Jacqueline Kennedy II and Tom Wesselmann's Nude.

Among the top lots were three works by Lichtenstein, two of which were part of the Hutcheson collection. His 1994 Roommates, from the Nude Series drew $150,000, and is signed, annotated and dated in pencil in the lower right, with a blindstamp by the publisher: Tyler Graphics, Mount Kisco in New York. Lichtenstein's 1990 Reflections on Crash, from Reflections Series went for $112,500 and also is signed, annotated and dated in pencil in the lower right, with a blindstamp by the publisher: Tyler Graphics. His 1990 Reflections on Girl, from the Reflections series brought in $106,250 and is signed, dated and numbered in pencil in the lower right, with a blindstamp by the publisher: Tyler Graphics, Mount Kisco in New York.

Rounding out the top five was Joan Mitchell's 1992 Sunflowers II lithographs in colors on wove paper, which sold for $78,125, more than doubling the previous auction record for any print by the artist.
