This painting entitled The Field Next to the Other Road, 1981 was estimated to be sold at $35 million back in 2015. This was a very high estimate. In the end it ended up selling for $33 million. With the estimate of $1.2-1.8 million for the U2 Adam Clayton, I feel it should sell for around $2-2.5 million. Looking into other pieces that were sold I feel that his more simplistic works sold for less than the larger paintings with all the different colors, words, and symbols. I feel the simple stick figure in the U2 Adam Clayton drawing wouldnt have that high of a price compared to some other works of Basquiat's.
