Duchampiania brought in $214,000 at Christie's recent New York sale of "Prints and Multiples," with seven of the eight works on the block fetching higher-than-expected prices.

The centerpiece of the auction was a posthumous copy of the Boîte-en-Valise, which sold for $92,500; earlier estimates valued it at $50,000 to $70,000. Other works of Duchampian interest included a copy of the Green Box ($35,000), a "scuffed" set of rotoreliefs ($25,000), two states of the Bouche-Evier (silver and bronze) and posters from the 1959 and 1967 retrospectives of the artist's career.
