A painting by British artist David Hockney recorded at a $ 90 million auction in New York.
According to the auction house, the portrait of an artist and portrait of a pool and two people, beginning in 1972, set a new record in terms of how much he earned for an artist who is still alive.
The American sculptor John Kohns had previously held a record for a work of art sold to a live artist.
British-born Hockney, 81, attended the Royal College of Art before moving to California in the 1960s. He divides his time between the United States and Britain.
