The art and the deal - Marylynne Pitz

"Red Boat (Imaginary Boys)" is a seascape painted by Peter Doig that appeared in the 2004-05 Carnegie International. The curator of the 2004-05 Carnegie International exhibition was thrilled to display "Red Boat (Imaginary Boys)" because she believed it would end up in the art museum's permanent collection. Instead, the large painting sold in June for $9.8 million to a private collector.
