Fourth Owner of Hirst Skull Outed


As you may recall, shortly after unveiling Hirst’s For the Love of God in 2007, White  Cube Gallery reported that the $100 million diamond emblazoned skull had in fact sold to a private investment group for the initial asking price. It didn’t take long for details to surface – to date, Hirst, along with his business manager Frank Dunphy and White Cube’s Jay Jopling are the majority owners.

Now, The Art Newspaper reports that Russian billionaire Viktor Pinchuk was recently outed by the Washington Post as a fourth part-owner of the skull. No wonder he is currently hosting a major Hirst retrospective at his own Pinchuk Art Centre in Kiev.
