Edward Hopper’s “Chop Suey” Fetches $91.8 Million at Christie’s

NEW YORK – Edward Hopper’s “Chop Suey,” a 1929 masterpiece, was sold on Tuesday for $91.8 million, a record for the American painter, at a Christie’s auction in New York.

According to the auction house, the sale of the first half of the Barney A Ebsworth collection, titled “An American Place,” reached a total sales figure of $317.801 million in a two-day auction of the exceptional collection of 20th century American art.

It is also the highest sales figure for a private collection of American art.

Thirty-seven of the 42 lots on offer were sold, while by value, the auction was 99 percent sold.

“Chop Suey,” the most famous Hopper painting left in private hands, sold for a record for the artist as well as for pre-war American art.

Willem de Kooning’s “Woman as Landscape” also made a new sales record for the artist, selling for $68.9 million, while Jackson Pollock’s “Composition with Red Strokes” was sold for $55.4 million.

According to the Christie’s, the Ebsworth family said they were happy with the auction and that it was homage to Barney Ebsworth’s eyes as a collector.

Ebsworth was a renowned collector and a multimillionaire businessman, named among the 200 biggest private collectors in the world.
