Art facts

Last February this painting was sold at a Sotheby's auction in London for £5.7 million (8,7 € million, $10 million). Peter Doig speaks about his views on this peculiar incident in this article from The Guardian newspaper. His comments on this matter start by the very curious declaration 'It made me feel sick, really".

  1. Yes I can kind of understand - its odd the amount of money one will pay for some paint on a canvas or a pice of porcelain or a piece of sparkly rock.

  2. Hello dear,

    what I'm really curious about is what a person like you and me living in this day and age must feel about the fact that his/her work reaches this price in the art market. And he didn't see any of that money!


Thanks dear visitor
