Jean Michel Basquiat - Dustheads
This piece is called, "The Field Next to the Other Road" by Jean Michel Basquiat. Often called Dustheads, this piece was reportedly sold for roughly 35 million dollars.This is one of the first Basquiat's big pieces that he made. I think people buy his art because it may seem interesting, but I think people buy them because his name is connected to them. That in itself skyrockets the prices on his work. Because the drawing being sold by Michael Clayton is indeed a self portrait, usually those pieces of art are priced high. And because of that theory, I feel like even though that drawing is estimated to be priced around 1 to 1.5 million dollars, I feel like it will sell for around 2.2 million.
