Peter Doig has been known to fetch a high price at auction, attracting eager bidders with his tranquil, snowy landscapes. But can you guess how much his latest bidding block item, "The Architect's Home in the Ravine," is set to sell for at Christie's auction?
If you guessed between $6.1 million and $9 million then you have an incredible eye for sales. The 1991 work could surpass the artist's current auction record of $10 million, which was made in 2007 when "White Canoe" sold at Sotheby's.
Other artworks poised to sell at Christie's include a multimedia collage by Jean-Michel Basquiat, "Enob," expected to fetch up to $3 million; an Egyptian-inspired painting by David Hockney, "Great Pyramids at Giza with Broken Head from Thebes," which could reach a price tag of $5.3 million; and a silk-screened image of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis by Andy Warhol, "Round Jackie," estimated to cost as much as $6.1 million. These works -- along with the pricey Doig painting -- will be on view in New York City this week in anticipation of the London Post-War and Contemporary Art Evening Sale in February.
