The 20 Most Expensive Works Of Art Sold At Auction In 2018



You might have missed it with everything else going on in the world, but 2018 was a pretty exciting year for the art market. Many major artists set new price records for their work, a lot of which were sold off from the collection of Peggy and David Rockefeller – which went for a record of its own, at $832.6 million, the most any estate has ever gotten. For a rundown of the year in art sales, here are the 20 highest valued works of art sold at auction in 2018.

Pablo Picasso, Le Repos, 1932: $36.9 Million

Andy Warhol, Double Elvis [Ferus Type], 1963: $37 Million


Vincent van Gogh, Vue de l’asile et de la Chapelle Saint­-Paul de Mausole (Saint­-Rémy), 1889: $39.7 Million

Pan Tianshou, View from the Peak, 1963: $41.4 Million

Jean­-Michel Basquiat, Flexible, 1984: $45.3 Million

Outside of the top 20, other art sales records were broken, like Sean Combs’ purchase of Kerry James Marshall’s 1997 painting Past Times, which at $21.1 million made Marshall the most expensive living black artist but failed to crack the top 50 in price overall. And Jenny Saville became the most expensive living female artist after one of her works sold for $12.4 million, but that was outside the top 100 most expensive paintings of the year.
