Prince Print Sets Auction Record For Photography
November 09, 2005 By Daryl Lang
An untitled cowboy photograph by Richard Prince set a record last night for the most expensive photograph sold at auction, with a price of $1,248,000.
The sale came in the first few minutes of a blockbuster auction of postwar and contemporary art at Christie's in New York. Prince's work was the only photograph in a 70-lot set that generated multi-million-dollar bids on works by Mark Rothko, Roy Lichtenstein, Willem de Kooning, Andy Warhol and others.
