David Hockney painting sells for $90M, breaking art record

A painting by English artist David Hockney sold for $90.3 million during an auction at Christie’s in Manhattan on Thursday.

The 1972 painting, “Portrait of an Artist (Pool with Two Figures),” broke the record for the most expensive piece of art sold at auction by a living artist.

The artwork depicts two men at a pool with lush mountains in the backdrop.

It sold after more than nine minutes of frenzied bidding, according to Agence France-Presse.

I am not qualified to judge this painting.It could be hanging in an office somewhere and just blend in to me.
