Warlugulong Update

Clifford Possum Tjapaltjarri - Warlugulong (1977) © Sotheby's ImagesArtDaily has belatedly published news of the record-breaking sale of Clifford Possum Tjapaltjarri's Warlugulong, which Coxsoft Art brought you yesterday (CLICK), and it shows a different painting! If you enter "Warlugulong" into Google Images Search you'll see the graphic I posted on my blog as Warlugulong. The ArtDaily picture is from Sotheby's Images, and Sotheby's must know which one it had up for auction! So I double checked my references and found there are two versions. The one I posted is 1976 and the one recently sold is 1977 and inferior to the 1976 original. I reckon old Possum sold the bank a pup.
