Artist Record for Richter
Sotheby’s set a living artist record on Friday with the sale of Gerhard Richter’s 1994 work Abstraktes Bild for US$34 million!
The artwork, which was owned by rock star Eric Clapton, was bought by a mystery bidder for US$34 million, a price much higher than its pre-sale estimate of US$14–19 million.
A sister painting of the Abstraktes Bild is currently jointly owned by the Tate and the National Galleries of Scotland.
