A Record For Fanzhi
A painting by Chinese artist Zeng Fanzhi sold for US$23.3 million at a Sotheby’s Hong Kong on Saturday, setting a new record price for a work by an Asian contemporary artist.
Inspired by Leonardo da Vinci’s famed 15th-century mural, "The Last Supper," Fanzhi’s large painting of the same name was sold after a 10-minute war between two telephone buyers.
The work, which was sold by Swiss collectors Guy and Mariam Ullens, far surpassed the original estimate of around US$10 million.
