U.S. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin’s dad pays record $91M For Stainless-Steel Rabbit Sculpture By Jeff Koons
It feels safe to say the U.S. Treasury Secretary has no idea about the plight of a majority of U.S. citizens. Privilege shields up.
A three-foot stainless-steel rabbit holding a carrot reportedly sold at a record $91.07 million at Christie’s Auction House in New York on Wednesday.
The work was bought by art dealer Robert Mnuchin, father of Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin.
The 1986 Jeff Koons sculpture, known simply as “Rabbit,” is one of only four in the world and was previously owned by former Condé Nast owner S.I. Newhouse.
“Rabbit” now holds the record as the most expensive piece of art made by a living artist.
