David Hockney painting expected to break auction records

NEW YORK (AP) — A painting by the British artist David Hockney is expected to sell for some $80 million at Christie’s, easily breaking the record for a work by a living artist sold at auction.

Hockney’s 1972 “Portrait of an Artist (Pool with Two Figures),” one of his famous “pool paintings,” is considered one of his premier works and will come to auction in November. It has long been held by a private collector.

The previous record for a work by a living artist was set by Jeff Koons’ “Balloon Dog,” which sold for $58.4 million in 2013.

Christie’s has estimated the work at about $80 million, but experts there expect it to sell for more.
