Skull of an American Artist Sold for 93 Million Dollars – Our Life – Bodies


“In This Case” was sold to Jean-Michel Basquia for $ 93.1 million at an auction organized by Christie’s in New York, the second-highest price for the New York painter.
Measuring 1.98 x 1.87 meters, this 1983 painting depicts a skull on a red background. It sold for $ 81 million, and reached a final price of $ 93.1 million after adding fees and commissions, which far exceeds Christie’s estimate of $ 50 million.
However, the record for Basquia paintings (1960-1988) is still for a painting titled “Intitled”, which also represents a skull, and it sold for $ 110.5 million in May 2017 at a Sotheby’s auction in New York.
