Can Damien Hirst do no wrong? The charitable (Red) Auction the British artist spearheaded at Sotheby’s New York on Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14, 2008, totaled $42,584,300 -- including a buyer’s premium of 10 percent to cover administrative costs -- with 82 of the 83 lots finding buyers. The total is well above the presale estimate of $21 million-$29 million. The sale set new auction records for 17 artists, including Marc Quinn ($605,000), Banksy ($1,870,000), Howard Hodgkin ($792,000), Keith Tyson ($440,000) and Bernar Venet ($297,000).
