3. This piece was a part of a selling exhibition of Basquiat’s work at Sotheby’s.

Sotheby’s has confirmed that Basquiat’s “Untitled (resume)” has sold; the asking price was $50,000. Because this is a selling exhibition and not a public auction, Sotheby’s keeps the final selling price private.

4. The asking price for the 31 items in the show ranged from $20,000 to $12 million.

5. The record for a single Basquiat work was set in May at a Christie’s auction where “Dustheads” sold for $48.8 million.
