After Wednesday’s New York Academy of Art benefit auction at Sotheby’s, the school’s head, David Kratz, joked to the night’s winning bidders (after Banksy’s epic prank at the auction house): “I hope you enjoy the art you bought, because right now it’s self-shredding.”

The annual “Take Home a Nude” event raised $900,000 and honored 11 art muses including Helena Christensen, Debbie Harry, Jerry Hall and Brooke Shields. Guests included exes Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts.
