Basquiat painting sells for $110.5m in New York
A painting by the late graffiti artist Jean-Michel Basquiat has sold at auction in New York for $110.5m (£85.4m).
That is nearly double the price of his previous most expensive work, which was bought a year ago.
The untitled work, which depicts a face in the shape of a skull, went to a telephone buyer following 10 minutes of bidding with a client in Sotheby’s.
Basquiat, a native New Yorker, died in 1988 of a heroin overdose aged 27.
