Kelly Crow winds up her European jaunt with a quick catalogue of sales at ArtBasel:
- Old Master-style portraits by Kerry James Marshall, better known for his idyllic scenes of African-American suburbia, at the booth of New York dealer Jack Shainman. Mr. Marshall’s untitled depiction of a woman holding a palette sold for $350,000, the gallery confirmed.
- Zurich gallery Hauser & Wirth, meanwhile, placed Subodh Gupta’s €650,000 creamy table laden with unmovable stone cutlery, “Marble utensils on table,” next to Louise Bourgeois’ untitled 2006 quilt-like wall hanging, which sold for an undisclosed price. The pairing feels equally haunting and homey.
