Drowning, Not Wave-ing: World's Most Popular Artist?

David Hockney painting poised to smash auction records
"A well-known painting by British artist David Hockney is poised to smash the record for a work by a living artist sold at auction.
"Portrait of an Artist (Pool with Two Figures)" is set to be sold at a Christie's sale in November, at an estimated price of $80 million. The current record was set by Jeff Koons in 2013, when his 
"Balloon Dog" sold for $58.4 million."
So it looks like the "Balloon Dog"'s record will burst in 2018, the Year of the Dog, ironically enough.
2018 and that Sinking/Synching Feeling?
"David Hockney's brilliance as an artist is on full display with this monumental canvas, which encapsulates the essence of the idealized poolside landscape, and the tremendous complexity that exists within human relationships," Rotter said in a statement. 
"With this painting, Hockney cemented his placement within the realm of history's most venerated artists."
F ... for F$cked!?
