David Hockney recently made history by becoming the most expensive living artist with the sale of Portrait of an Artist (Pool with Two Figures) for $90.3 million, which beat out Jeff Koons earlier record of $58.4 million. Portrait of an Artist was snapped up after 9 minutes of bidding at Christie’s New York last week.
Elsewhere the market is also showing buoyancy, with recent Frieze week auctions totaling $191,970,671. Leading the sales was Francis Bacon, Figure in Movement, 1972, that sold for $26,079,207in the Post War and Contemporary Art Evening Auction last week at Christies, London. A Frank Auerbach painting sold at Frieze Masters for over $5.9 million, above the artist’s current auction record. At Sotheby’s Contemporary Evening Sale Jenny Saville’s Propped, 1992, fetched $12.4 million (with fees) – double its high estimate – to become the most expensive work by a living female artist at auction.
