Billionaire Ken Griffin privately bought a Basquiat for $100 million
ARTinvestment.RU   05 июня 2020

It is the largest known transaction, which occurred in private or public order in 2020

81-й number in the list of billionaires Bloomberg Billionaires Index, the founder and head of the investment Fund Citadel LLC, Ken Griffin is known for his passion for contemporary art, patronage, and record-breaking amounts of money given them for the work of Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning. Now to these records we add another one.

"the Boy and the dog on fire" (Boy and dog in a Johnnypump) Jean-Мишеля Basquiat refers to the software and the most famous artist's paintings. For many years she was part of the collection of another well-known collector — newspaper magnate Peter Brant, who writes a newsletter Baer Faxt, and was bought by the Griffin. Despite the contrast with most art-сделок this year, which amounts did not exceed $5.5 million, the price of $100 million for a work of such quality is justified.

Three years ago, may 18, 2017 at Sotheby's auction in new-Йорке, the work of Basquiat "untitled" 1982 was purchased by Japanese billionaire Usacoe of Maezawa just above $110 million, the result was a record for works by the American artist, when-либо sold at public auction, and entered the top ten most expensive auction sales in the history of art-рынка.

Given the importance and popularity replicated annually in large quantities in the form of posters, it is particularly important that after a change of ownership people will not lose the opportunity to see her in person. The representative of the Fund Citadel Zia Ahmed also noted that "a large part of the collection of Ken is part of the exhibitions of various museums and the public has free access to it. And this work of art he intends to dispose of the same".
