Eric Clapton-owned Richter painting to sell in New York
NEW YORK (AP) - A work by German abstract painter Gerhard Richter from the collection of Eric Clapton is heading for a New York City auction.
Christie's says Abstraktes Bild is estimated to sell for US$20 million (S$25 million) to US$25 million on Nov 12.
It says the English guitarist and songwriter purchased the oil painting at auction in 2001.
The large oil painting was executed in 1994. It has a rich palette of red, purple, violet and yellow evocative of a fall landscape.
