After just 10 minutes of bidding, a giant record was broken at last night’s @Sothebys postwar and contemporary sale with #Basquiat’s ‘Untitled’ portrait from 1982 selling for a whopping $110.5 million.
Who was the buyer? Japanese fashion entrepreneur Yusaku Maezawa (@yusaku2020) who also purchased Basquiat’s second most expensive work only a year ago.
This sale set additional records as the first work created since 1980 to sell for over $100 million (only 10 works have ever surpassed that mark), the most expensive work by an American artist, and the most expensive work by an African-American artist ever sold.
Follow Basquiat on Artsy to explore over 100 of his works and add one to your collection today! [link in bio] • #SothebysContemporary

Thoughts on #DamienHirst? His mammoth (and controversial) comeback exhibition “Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable” at @Palazzo_Grassi includes hundreds of works fabricated to appear as if they’ve been recovered from an ancient shipwreck. At the center of the show lies the 52-foot-tall sculpture ’Demon with Bowl’, pictured here. Watch our story for more from the show and let us know what you think in the comments below. • #PalazzoGrassi#DamienHirstTreasures

Experience the work for yourself through this Sunday, May 7th at Skylight Clarkson Sq. in NYC. • #CollectiveDesign#CollectiveDesign2017
