Basquiat Painting Sells for Historic $110.5 Million At Sotheby’s Auction

A painting by Jean-Michel Basquiat just sold for the highest price ever paid at auction for a work by an American artist: a whopping $110.5 million.

The 72-by-68-inch acrylic and oil stick ?Untitled? painting of a skull by the late one-time graffiti artist was the subject of 10 minutes of intense bidding at a New York Sotheby?s auction Thursday night. The opening bid of $57 million drew gasps from the audience, Bloomberg reported. Sotheby?s had estimated it would sell for at least $60 million.

It was the sixth highest amount ever paid at auction for any work of art, putting Basquiat in the rarified company of Pablo Picasso. Only ten works have sold for more than $100 million.

It was purchased by Japanese e-commerce billionaire and art collector Yusaku Maezawa. He announced in an Instagram post standing next to the work that he had ?just won this masterpiece.?

?When I first encountered this painting, I was struck with so much excitement and gratitude for my love of art,? he added. ?I want to share that experience with as many people as possible.?

The painting was purchased in 1984 for $19,000 by collectors Jerry and Emily Spiegel when Basquiat was virtually unknown and was never publicly exhibited. Basquiat died of a heroin overdose in 1988 at the age of 27 after painting for just seven years. He created the skull in 1982. It?s considered one of his most important works still in private hands.

Maezawa plans to loan the work to institutions around the world before making it one of the centerpieces of a museum he has created in his hometown of Chiba, Japan.

Maezawa last year bought another 1982 Basquiat painting of a devil at a Christie?s auction for $57.3 million, which was then the most ever paid for a work by the artist.

The Basquiat was part of a Sothby?s Contemporary Art Evening Auction of American post war paintings that also featured works by Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol and Robert Rauschenberg, among other artists.

Car Runs Down More Than A Dozen Pedestrians In Times Square, Killing 1

NEW YORK CITY ? A vehicle barreled into pedestrians on a New York City sidewalk Thursday, leaving at least one person dead and at least 12 others injured, according the New York City Fire Department.

Pictures of the aftermath were posted by social media users, which showed a car spewing smoke as first responders report to the scene. (Some of the photos shown below may be disturbing to some readers.)

Tiffany Wong, 23, was across the street from the carnage when the crash occurred.

?It was unreal, I?m still trying to process,? Wong told HuffPost. ?I saw the car go down the sidewalk across from me, then it was smoking and on fire. I saw one woman who was hit and on the ground. And that was after he hit a bunch of others.?

Wong said she saw a man inside the vehicle crawl out and try to run away. Other pedestrians stopped him from fleeing, she said.

Witnesses said there was panic immediately following the crash. Some people fled the scene, while others rushed to get police help. Within 20 minutes, officers had secured the Square.

Tyrone Lopez, 37, said the driver was flying up the street at upwards of ?70 miles per hour? and that he kept hitting pedestrians as he careened from 42nd street up to 45th street.

?I saw one lady he hit ? he dragged her up a half a block before she stopped at the corner, and he kept going up the street hitting everything on the way.?

The New York City Police Department and first responders are on the scene of a still active investigation. Police and fire officials have blocked off the street three blocks in every direction from the incident. The NYPD did not immediately return a request for comment.

See more photos of the incident below.

This is a developing story.
