Realizing more than £37 million at auction, David Hockney’s Henry Geldzahler and Christopher Scott (1969) is the first work by the artist to be registered on the blockchain in the Artory Registry. The work comes from Hockney’s ‘Double Portraits’ series of monumental paintings and has been likened to Italian quattrocento Annunciation triptychs.

Henry Gendzahler, a curator at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, had a close friendship with Hockney until Gendzahler’s death in 1994, and the work depicts him and his partner, Christopher Scott, in their New York apartment.

According to Marc Porter, Chairman of Christie’s Americas:

This piece, and many others, can be seen on the Artory Registry.
