“In This Case”, by Jean-Michel Basquia, was sold for $ 93.1 million, at an auction organized by Christie’s in New York, the second highest price for the New York painter.

This painting, measuring 1.98 by 1.87 meters and painted in 1983, depicts a skull against a red background. It sold for $ 81 million. Its final price was $ 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 was sold for $ 110.5 million in May 2017 at an auction by Sotheby’s in New York.
