Ed Ruscha - Auction record

Ed Ruscha - Double Standard, 1969

In their October 12 Modern Art and Design Auction Los Angeles Modern Auctions achieved  a new world auction record for the highest amount ever paid for any print by Ed Ruscha. Bidding drove the final price for Ruscha’s Double Standard, 1969, (Lot 75 est. $50,000 – 70,000) to $206,250.

In the same sale, LAMA also set new world records for Mike Kelley, and Robert Mapplethorpe, plus selling works by John Baldessari above pre-sale estimates.
