Bukanlah hal yang biasa kalo karya lama dari seniman ternama pasti bakal dicari-cari oleh para kolektor. Nggak jarang para kolektor bersedia merogoh kocek mereka dalam-dalam untuk melengkapi koleksi dari seniman favorit mereka.

Dan kali ini yang akan masuk ke lelang adalah mural dari Keith Haring. Mural ini dibuat Haring pada tahun 1983. Ia membuat mural di Grace House, Pusat Pemuda Katolik di Upper West Side, Manhattan.

Bonhams will offer the first Keith Haring mural ever to come to auction in our Post-War & Contemporary Art sale on November 13 in New York. • One of Haring’s best-hidden treasures, the monumental 85ft 'The Grace House Mural' was painted by the artist circa 1983/1984, up three-stories of the five-story stairwell of Grace House, a former convent and home of the Catholic Youth Organization in Upper Manhattan. The 13 figures, preserved in 15 separate sections, have been described as a “lexicon of Haring’s vocabulary” and contains his iconic figures such as the Radiant Baby, the Barking Dog, and the figures dancing. • Bruno Vinciguerra, Bonhams Executive Chairman, commented: “Keith Haring’s Grace House Mural encapsulates a classic New York story by the ultimate New York artist. Haring’s ingenuity and spontaneity shine through this astonishing monumental work. It’s history and it’s composition make it one of the most exciting lots to come on to the market this year.” • 'The Grace House Mural' will be on view in Bonhams’ Madison Avenue galleries on November 2-13. • #BonhamsNY #Bonhams1793 #Bonhams #BonhamsContemporary @bonhamscontemporary #keithharing #artist #1980s #newyorkart #contemporaryart #postwarart #fineart
