French billionaire Bernard Arnault and U.S. financier Henry Kravis browsed France’s largest art fair as a Jean-Michel Basquiat painting and a wrecked Ferrari were among early big-ticket sales last night.
Bertrand Lavier’s 1993 found-object sculpture “Dino,” consisting of a written-off Ferrari Dino GT4, was among the quirkier objects at FIAC in Paris. It sold for $250,000. The Basquiat work was bought by an unidentified Greek collector for slightly less than $5 million.
