Pissed, an intriguing artwork by British duo Gilbert & George, auctioned at Christie's London yesterday (April 17). It sold for £85,857 ($131,646).
Starring a naked George being supported by an ever-dapper Gilbert, as well as six enlarged, hand-coloured, microscopic images of urine, the 1996 canvas typifies the pair's artistic output.
Works by Gilbert & George are popular among collectors of contemporary art. In May 2004, another intoxicant-inspired artwork, 1974's A Drinking Sculpture, brought $400,000 to Phillips de Pury.
