DALLAS – Andy Warhol’s light never fades. The artist’s iconic 1975 portrait of Mick Jagger, the irreplaceable Rolling Stones front man, took center stage on April 18 during Heritage’s Prints & Multiples event.

After a two-hour bidding scrum for only 91 lots, the auction closed past $1.5 million and proved the current strength of this art category.
