The word on the street is that British artist David Hockney is poised to smash the record for a work by a living artist sold at auction this coming November. The 81-year old artist’s 1972 painting “Portrait of an Artist (Pool with Two Figures)” is estimated to sell for a cool $80 million.  The current record was set by Jeff Koons in 2013, when his “Balloon Dog” sold for $58.4 million.

If you don’t have $80 million casually sitting in the bank but you’re craving a touch of Hockney in your home, find our picks of interior décor inspired by the famous artists paintings below.
