The Hockney paintings were auctioned for $ 90 million


New York – A painting by British painter David Hockney was sold at Christie's in New York on Thursday for 90.3 million dollars. The prize is a recording of a work by an artist who still lives.

The painting "Portrait of an Artist (Swimming Pool with Two Figures)" detronized the "Jeff Koons Balloon (Orange) Dog". The plant was sold in 2013 for $ 58.4 million, also at Christie's in New York.

The picture created in 1972 shows a swimming pool in front of a hilly landscape in which a man swims. Another man is sitting on the edge of the pool and looking.

Hockney is considered one of the most important contemporary artists. The most expensive auction to date has been the "Pacific Coast and Santa Monica Motorway" since 1990, which amounted to approximately $ 28 million in May.
