An interesting late report comes from an unexpected direction.
This morning it was reported that the Steve Wynn is selling two Picassos and a Warhol this season at Christie’s. This prompted Katya Kazakina to check her sources which revealed an additional sale at Art Basel in Hong Kong:
Wynn, 76, one of the top U.S. collectors of modern and contemporary art, had already parted with Warhol’s 1981 “Superman.” The painting was exhibited by Acquavella Galleries at Art Basel Hong Kong. The asking price was $19.5 million and the work sold during the fair, according to the New York gallery, which declined to identify the consignor. “Superman” fetched $14.4 million at Sotheby’s in 2015.
