   Above is one of Basquiat's paintings, called Untitled (Yellow tar and feathers). Sold by a private collector, a high estimate of twenty million dollars was anticipated. However, the piece ended up being sold for well above the asking price: ultimately it went for $25,925,000 - almost six million above asking. Although the piece owned by Clayton is a drawing rather than a painting, the pattern of Basquiat's works traditionally going for hefty prices remains. Estimated to sell between 1.2 and 1.8 million, I believe the drawing will go for higher. For a hammer price, I will suggest roughly $3,000,000.
