A painting by British artist David Hockney is set to become the most expensive work by a living artist to ever be sold at auction.

英国艺术家大卫·霍克尼(David Hockney)的一幅画将成为在世艺术家在拍卖会上出售的最昂贵的作品。

Portrait of an Artist (Pool with Two Figures) is expected to fetch USD 80m at auction in New York in November, according to Christie’s.

根据佳士得的说法,《艺术家的肖像》(又名《游泳池和两人》)预计将于11月在纽约的拍卖会上卖出8000万美元。

It is "one of the great masterpieces of the modern era," Christie’s added.

它是“现代最伟大的杰作之一”,佳士得说。

The current record belongs to American Jeff Koons. His stainless steel Balloon Dog (Orange) sold for USD 58m in 2013.

目前最高拍卖记录由美国的杰夫·昆斯持有。他的不锈钢气球狗(橙色)在2013年以5800万美元的价格成交。

"Right now, the price level for this painting is set in the region of USD80m, which doesn’t mean I want to cap it there, but that’s where we place it within the context of market history," said Alex Rotter, co-chairman of Post-War and Contemporary Art and Christie’s.

“现在,这幅画的价格水平设定在8000万美元左右,这并不意味着我想限制住这个价格,但我们是依据市场历史背景定的价,”战后与当代艺术兼佳士得联合主席Alex Rotter说。

"In 10, 15, 20 years from now, if you buy it, we definitely want it back and I can tell you, we’ll sell it for more," he added.

“从现在起10年,15年,20年后,如果你购买它,我们肯定会想要回它,我可以告诉你,我们会把它卖得更高,”他补充道。

One of the Yorkshire painter’s most recognisable works, the composition of the two figures began as two separate photographs on the artist’s studio floor.

作为这位约克郡画家最知名的作品之一,这两个人物的构图始于艺术家工作室的两张独立照片。

It was completed in time for an exhibition at New York’s André Emmerich Gallery in 1972.

它是为1972年在纽约的AndréEmmerich画廊举办的展览而创作完成的。

It has since appeared in a number of retrospectives at the Tate Modern, Centre Pompidou in Paris and the Met in New York.

此后,它出现在泰特现代美术馆,巴黎蓬皮杜中心和纽约大都会的一些回顾展中展出。

Earlier this year, another of the 81-year-old’s paintings sold for USD28.5m - a personal auction record for the artist.

今年早些时候,这位81岁的艺术家的另一幅画作以2850万美元(的价格成交 - 这是该艺术家的个人拍卖纪录。

Christie’s has not disclosed the private seller, but Mr Rotter added: "It is this rare coincidence - when the best painting of an artist is actually available.

佳士得没有透露该画的私人卖家,但Rotter先生补充说:“当一位艺术家的最佳画作出现在拍卖行,是一个罕见的巧合之事。”

"With this painting, Hockney cemented his placement within the realm of history’s most venerated artists, and come November, it is poised to become the most valuable work of art by a living artist ever sold at auction."

“通过这幅画,霍克尼巩固了他作为历史上最受尊敬的艺术家的地位,并且到了11月,该画有望成为有史以来在拍卖会上出售的艺术家最有价值的作品。”

The painting will be exhibited in Hong Kong, London and Los Angeles, before it is auctioned on 15 November.

这幅画将于11月15日的拍卖之前在香港,伦敦和洛杉矶展出。
