Apart from the skyrocketing Basquiat, which Japanese collector Yusaku Maezawa, founder of virtual mall ZOZOTOWN announced to have bought via his IG for an incredible $110,5 million during Sotheby`s mega auction week, there were other lots that did extremely well, too.
E.g. Roy Lichtenstein‘s Nude Sunbathing(1995), that was sold within its estimate for $24 million.
It seems, the art party is definitely ongoing and galleries slowly start packing the crates with some of their gems to be shipped towards Basel – where fair doors of Art Basel, Design Miami, Liste, Scope and some more satellite events open in 3,5 weeks.
