When reading the weekend newspaper supplement, I read something very interesting.
Did you know that the record for the highest price paid at auction for a living artist, is for a rabbit sculpture named “Rabbit”? Well.. of course it is!
The shiny, stainless steel rabbit made headlines in the art world after it was sold for USD$91.1 million at Christie’s in May.
The man behind “Rabbit” is made by American artist Jeffrey Koons who has made many other famous contemporary art works. “Rabbit” was sold to American billionaire hedge fund manager and avid art collector Steven Cohen.
With a rabbit sculpture in his possession, it seems like Steven just got a bit richer.
