Just hours before a planned auction, the Baltimore Museum of Art decided Wednesday to halt the sale of three paintings by Andy Warhol, Clyfford Still and Brice Marden to generate funds for its diversity and equity programs.

Still’s “1957-G” and Marden’s “3” were set to be auctioned at Sotheby’s on Wednesday evening.
