Posted on: 18 January 2008

Via PDN:

Richard Prince reclaimed the record for most expensive photo sold at auction, when a print of his sold at Sotheby’s in New York for $3,401,000.

The price narrowly exceeded the previous record of $3.34 million for an Andreas Gursky diptych sold at Sothey’s in London in February 2007.

The record-breaking Prince image is from his untitled cowboy series – in which Prince photographed sections of Marlboro cigarette ads and enlarged the photos to an enormous size. The photo sold at Sotheby’s measures 100 by 66 inches and was one of an edition of two plus one artist’s proof. It is dated 2001-02.
