Gursky’s “99 Cent II Diptychon
Recently, an anonymous bidder paid $2.48 million for Gursky’s “99 Cent II Diptychon” (2001), which shows the cluttered interior of the famous discount store.
The sale, made at a Nov. 16 auction at Phillips de Pury & Company in New York, set an auction record for a work by a living photographer.

Who knew it was considered a new classic.
Gursky, a German photographer born in 1955, is known for his objective, documentary-like studies of the everyday. His large-format photos have captured scenes like apartment buildings, concert crowds and the floor of the Tokyo Stock Exchange. He was the subject of a 2001 exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, where 43 of his prints were on display.
