Njideka Akunyili Crosby, one of the daughters of late Dora Akunyili, has sold one of her numerous artworks for N1.2 billion ($3.4 million). The young #artist who as at 2016, still sold her paintings for $3,000 (N1,089,000) recently sold her “Bush Babies” painting for a whopping sum of $3.4 million. The equivalent of which is 1.2billion in naira. Is that a fortune or what?
The painting called “Bush Babies” (2017) was estimated to be sold for $800,000 by Sotheby’s but it surprisingly sold for 3.4 million dollars.
The ‘Bush Babies’ artwork was sold during an #auction at the Christie’s in #London, United Kingdom.
This is definitely the first of many artworks that are going to sell for this price and higher. It was reported that at least 20 public #museums are on a waiting list for works which Njideka hasn’t even painted yet.
