While beauty may remain in the eye of the beholder, how do you not call something worth $30 million anything but a commodity?
The work of painter Jean-Michel Basquiat has a market with very deep pockets, according to a report from Art Info based upon information picked up from the Baer Faxts.
“Dustheads,” a 1982-rendering by Mr. Basquiat, is rumored to be headed to Christie’s in May, with a guarantee of $30-million transaction, if it falls into place. Either way, it is still fun to view, isn’t it?

Baer [Facxs] adds that another Basquiat painting, “Museum Security (Broadway Meltdown),” which was withdrawn from Christie’s last year after a lawsuit broke out between the sellers, the Mugrabi family, and its previous owner, Edward Spencer-Churchill, was recently sold for $15 million as part of a settlement.
