on the day of auction, putting in my two cents about buying a Basquiat…

A mogul bought it, alright.  Read this Art Net article to find out more about Yusaku Maezawa, the 40-year-old founder of Contemporary Art Foundation, and Japan’s largest online fashion mall, Zozotown, who bought Basquiat’s work.  Also check out what else was auctioned, from Jeff Koons to Joan Mitchell works. 

Art.
