Art Collector Sells Lichtenstein For $165 Million To Fund Criminal Justice Reform

A visitor stands in front of "Masterpiece" during a press preview of "Lichtenstein, a Retrospective" at the Tate Modern in London in 2013. The iconic painting was owned by Agnes Gund, who recently sold it for $150 million to fund a new criminal justice reform fund.

Agnes Gund sold Roy Lichtenstein’s “Masterpiece” for an eye-popping sum to support the new Art For Justice Fund. The group will fight against mass incarceration and support released prisoners.
