Hockney Auction Could Set Record

“Another art market world record is expected to be broken when one of David Hockney’s most significant works comes to auction. Sotheby’s yesterday announced it will sell The Splash, painted in 1966, with an estimate of£2.2m-£3m. That should easily beat the world record set for a Hockney last week when A Neat Lawn went for £1.9m in New York.”
