Adriana Varejão's Parede com Incisões a la Fontana II (Wall with Incisions a la Fontana II), 2001, was estimated at £200,000 to £300,000 at Christie's contemporary-art auction in February. It sold for £1.1 million, or $1.8 million—a record for the artist. With prices fluctuating widely, collectors are often shocked to learn that their holdings are underinsured.
