High End Art Auctions and Women Artists
Who are the most expensive post-war women artists? At auction, these artists are Louise Bourgeois and Joan Mitchell.
However, in the national trend at up scale art auctions for of post-war era and living artists, women artists are still under-represented and proceeds from sales are way behind male artists. Proceeds from a sale earlier this month at Christie's had ten lots by eight women artists ( it's highest ever). Yet proceeds on all the works by women artists in the Christie's sale was less than 5% of total sales, not even half the price achieved that night by a single picture of two naked women by Yves Klein.
Things are changing slowly. New York based photographer Cindy Sherman received one of the highest prices ever paid for a photograph for her 1981 Centerfold series. She also has a major exhibition at MOMA right now.
Here are the most expensive post-war women artists:
Louise Bourgeois, Spider, 1996
Joan Mitchell Untitled: 1960
Cindy Sherman:Untititled #96 1981 Most paid for a photograph
