David Hockney is considered to be one of the most important British artists of the 20th century.  He is perhaps best known for his serial paintings of swimming pools, portraits of friends, and verdant landscapes. The artist’s works range from collaged photography and posters, to Cubist-inspired abstractions and open-air paintings of the English countryside.

During Last nights Christie's auction, Hockney's Portrait of an Artist (Pool with Two Figures) (1972) sold for $90.3 million at the post war and contemporary art in Rockefeller Center.

The work by the British artist topples Jeff Koons's Balloon Dog which sold for $58.4 million to become the most expensive work by a living artist. The sale more than tripled the British artist’s current record of $28.4 million set in May.

Hockney’s record shows a sharp escalation in his status as one of the few artists who can command prices in the upper eight figures. Just two years ago, his auction record was $11.7 million.

Bidding on the 1972 painting opened at $18 million and quickly rose. The work was brought to auction by consigner Joe Lewis. Lewis was confidant in a strong performance and listed the painting without reserve, causing bidding to open at the relatively low threshold. The whole process lasted 9 minutes.

    I’ve heard countless stories and read numerous articles about people losing their hard-earned money to online scammers who initially appear friendly but have sinister intentions. Sadly, I found myself in a similar predicament when I lost a staggering $610,000 to a binary investment scheme on Instagram.

    My world turned upside down when my account on the platform restricted my access and denied my withdrawal request after I had invested my life savings with hopes of earning more interest. It was a devastating realization that I had fallen victim to a scam company that knew how to manipulate the situation. Despite my efforts, I couldn’t retrieve my funds, and I felt like my life was spiraling towards disaster.

    Desperate for help and with no recourse from the authorities, I turned to friends and family until I stumbled upon wizardassetrecovery@gmx.us. This team proved to be my saving grace, helping me recover all that I had lost. To all those who have been victims of online investment scams, I want to assure you that there is hope for recovery. Just as Wizard Asset Recovery came through for me, they can do the same for you.

I can’t express enough gratitude to them for their exceptional service.
