DALLAS, TX.- Andy Warhol's celebrated Campbell's Soup Box (Chicken Rice), 1986, sold for $293,000 — nearly twice expectations — in Heritage Auctions' Modern & Contemporary Art Auction, Part II. The Nov. 14 auction concluded the firm's fall Modern & Contemporary Art auctions. Sales surpassed $7.3 million and set a house record.

The results prove Heritage is a strong competitor in this market," said Frank Hettig, Director of Modern & Contemporary Art at Heritage Auctions. "We have high expectations for next season and are excited to present collectors with some of the best work on the market."

Earlier this season, Heritage launched its first Modern & Contemporary Art Auction in New York as the first auction in a two-part sale. Part I realized more than $3.8 million on 21 lots. Part II in Dallas surpassed $3.4 million, predominately from Post-War artworks. Many classics by Warhol surpassed expectations.
