David Hockney’s Portrait of an Artist sold for $90.3 million at a sale in New York on November 15th which breaks the record of any piece sold by a living artist. Owner of the piece, Joe Lewis (reportedly owner of Tottenham Hotspur) now owns a piece by an openly gay artist about the emotional life of gay men. It is really rare to see same-sex themed artwork which makes this piece so so valuable.
