Basquiat’s 1982 “Palm Springs Jump” sold for $12.7 million. 

A detail from Jawlensky’s “Schokko With Wide-Brimmed Hat” (1910). 

So there was considerable relief when a Francis Bacon triptych fetched $51.6 million or when, after frenzied bidding, a landscape by the German Expressionist painter Franz Marc made $24.3 million — a record for the artist at auction — or when an 1874 Renoir that sold for $12.1 million in 1989 was snapped up for $14.6 million

One of her clients paid $18.6 million for Jawlensky’s “Schokko With Wide-Brimmed Hat,” a colorful 1910 portrait of a young German village girl. The price was more than double the previous auction record for the artist, set at Sotheby’s in New York in 2003. 

and a Klimt drawing for $451,000.
