These Are the Most Expensive Living American Artists!

You might know some of the most expensive living artists, but do you know who are the most expensive living American artists?

If not, you’re in the right place, because Ealuxe made a top 10 list of several living American artists whose artworks  fetched at auctions huge amounts of money.

Not all artworks are exhibited in the great museums of the world. Some of those belong to private art collectors, which apparently is one of the costliest ‘hobbies’ reserved only to millionaires.

There are many American artists who have some of most amazing artworks and they’re expensive. But not as expensive as these ones.

Let’s get straight to business!

10Cady Noland

We begin our top 10 list of the most expensive living American artists with Cady Noland, a postmodern conceptual sculptor and an internationally exhibited installation artist.

Born in 1956, Cady Noland set the record for the highest price ever paid for an artwork by a living woman for her 1989 ‘Oozewald’, sold at Sothebys for $6.6 million.

Daughter of the ‘Color Field’ painter Kenneth Noland (1924 – 2010), Noland’s work often explores what she calls ‘The American Nightmare’ or aspects of American culture she considers toxic, such as glamour, celebrity, violence and death.
