The Billionaire founder of the hedge fund firm Citadel, Ken Griffin, bought the contemporary paintings “Interchanged” (Willem de Kooning) and “Number 17A” (Jackson Pollock).
Interchanged by Willem de Kooning
He loaned the works of art to the Art Institute of Chicago.
Griffin paid approximately $ 300 million for “Interchanged” and for about $ 200 million “Number 17A”.
The price for de Kooning’s painting matches the sale of Paul Gaugin’s Nafea Faa Ipoipo (When will you marry?), which is believed to be the highest mark for a private sale.
