Tracey Emin's 'My Bed' Sells For £2.5 million As Part Of Charles Saatchi Spring Clean


Tracey Emin Charles Saatchi

Tracey Emin's artwork My Bed has sold in London for £2.54 million, a much larger figure than the guide price of between £800,000 and £1.2 million. The 1999 seminal art installation, which documents the artist's traumatic relationship breakdown, has changed hands from Charles Saatchi to Jay Jopling, the art dealer and founder of the White Cube gallery.

The Christie's sale reportedly opened at £650,000 and the bidding steadily got higher until Emin's artwork eventually went for over double the estimate at £2.54m. As the winning bid was announced, Emin was spotted smiling and applauding, according to The Guardian.

The large sculpture depicts a bed that Emin claims to have spent a week in after a bad break up. Complete with vodka bottles, tampons, dirty clothing, cigarette butts and pregnancy tests, the shocking installation didn't win the 1999 Turner Prize, having lost out to Steve McQueen.

Tracey Emin's infamous art installation 'My Bed' is to go onsale via a Christie's auction for the purportedly bargain guide price of between £800,000 and £1.2 million. Whilst not exactly a pocket money purchase for most of the population, the price has been reportedly criticised for being too low for the British artist's seminal work.

Nigella Lawson was denied entry to the US seemingly for admitting she had used cocaine in a court case last year. The 54-year-old allegedly attempted to board a plane to Los Angeles from Heathrow but was informed, once she was through security, that she would not be able to enter the US if she boarded the plane.

Writing in his column on 18 Janaury, Taki said Saatchi had a "coward's bullying manner" though in a vitriolic response in Wednesday's magazine, Saatchi said it was "hapless of you to spring to Nigella's defence last week, as she always found you toe-curlingly vile, and would have been aghast at having you as her valiant supporter."
