Looking for the perfect Warhol to tie the room together? Go no farther than Martin Lawrence Galleries in The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace, which holds its spring art auction April 13 in its 26,000-square-foot gallery space.

Art enthusiasts can browse more than 1,200 works by some 50 artists, including Warhol, Picasso, Chagall, Rembrandt, Haring, Miro, Murakami and more, with a preview beginning at 6:30 p.m.

The auction is open to the public, making The Forum Shops a one-stop shop for all the luxury items one could want from a trip to Las Vegas. Through April 10, you can even pick up a painting by Def Leppard drummer Rick Allen at Martin Lawrence Galleries, displayed in conjunction with the band's current residency at The Joint in The Hard Rock Hotel.

Bidding at Martin Lawrence Galleries often opens at 25 to 75 percent off retail pricing, though with pricing ranging from $595 for a hand-signed lithograph to hundreds of thousands of dollars for a painting, the discount comes relative.

To take part in the auction, interested bidders should call the gallery at (702) 991-5990 for a catalog and to reserve space. Those who cannot attend in person can contact the gallery to discuss advance purchases or place absentee bids.
