Every morning of the Basel Art Fair The Art Newspaper brings out a special Art Basel Daily Edition with reports on sales, near sales and who has purchased what. In this morning’s edition the paper agreed with our observation yesterday that antlers are hot with artists and collectors. The Art Fair Newspaper reports that Chelsea dealer Paula Cooper sold seven Sherrie Levine Caribou Skulls cast in bronze for $125,000 each. And because you're wondering, Kohei Nawa's stuffed deer covered with glass beads went for $100,000 and the swan cast in marble powder by Bethan Huws for around $80,000.
