Artprice: Basquiat breaks auction record at US USD 110 million, a true economic indicator for the Art Market

Vendredi 19 Mai 2017 à 16:30

Basquiat's 1982 Untitled painting was purchased for US$19,000 in 1984 – thirty-three years later, it sold for 5,800 times the amount. Yesterday's stunning US$110 million record is also the newest record price for the young graffiti artist who was born in the Bronx and signed his works “Samo” (Same old shit).

The fact that the buyer is Japanese proves not only that Basquiat is recognized internationally but also that the Art Market is unequivocally global!

According to thierry Ehrmann, the ceo and founder of Artprice: “the Art Market's structure is undergoing significant changes in 2017 – with the shortage in Old Masters that is progressively spreading to Modern Art, Contemporary Art is becoming the new key economic indicator and it is meant to grow exponentially, as Artprice had pointed it out in one of its reports.”

Basquiat is now one the very few (7) artists whose works crossed the 100 million dollar threshold at auctions: Picasso, Modigliani, Bacon, Giacometti, Munch, Warhol – and Basquiat, now. He was only 27 years old when he died and would be 56 today, which makes him the only contemporary artist in this very small circle! Taking into account all the parameters, this points to a true economic indicator, significant, with a Contemporary Art performance unprecedented in the Art Market.

What makes the new record hammer price even more striking is that it has topped the one set just last year at US$57.3 million – with very different artworks at stake: Basquiat's painting measures 72 1/8 x 68 1/8 in. when the one that elicited last year's record measured 94 x 197 in. (183 x 173 cm vs. 238 x 500 cm).

In 2016, Basquiat ranked 7th in Artprice's top 500 ranking. US$100 invested in 2000 in a work by Jean-Michel BASQUIAT would be worth an average of US$1,098 (+998%) in April 2017 (econometric source: Artprice).

A spectacular week has just come to an end. It has proved prolific in indications about the Art Market's strengths in 2017. Jean-Michel BASQUIAT's extraordinary US$110 million record is undoubtedly the week's key moment. Beyond that, this week has shown that COLLECTORS want museum quality pieces – but rareness is their top priority. The Art market is back on track.
