Two paintings have brought in big bucks for the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum. 

Sotheby’s Auction House in New York sold “A Street” and “Calla Lillies on Red” for nearly $19.5 million combined on Wednesday. 

A third painting “Cottonwood Tree in Spring” will go up for auction Friday night. It’s expected to bring in more than $1.5 million. 

The museum is selling the paintings so it can buy more O’Keeffe works.
