Eric Clapton Sells Another Gerhard Richter

Gerhard Richters Abstraktes Bild
This November, the music legend Eric Clapton will sell his second Gerhard Richter painting at Christie's Auction House in New York. The first time around in 2012, Clapton sold a Richter painting, also by the name of Abstraktes Bild, for $35 million, which was far and away above the expected sale price of $14-19 million. This set a new record as the highest price ever paid for a painting at auction for a living artist. This current painting that will be up for auction is expected to fetch around $25 million.
