Hirst works in sculpture, installation and painting.Deriving his artistic language from an extraordinarily diverse range of sources – including the long tradition of the readymade, the imagery of advertising and Victorian curiosity cabinets – he appropriates, collages and assembles common objects and known artistic structures and vocabularies without any kind of hierarchy, to create new and highly symbolic works that raise profound metaphysical questions.Hirst holds a special position within the Astrup Fearnley Museet, which now boasts a significant collection of his works, starting with the acquisition of Mother and Child (Divided) (1993) in 1996.The museum’s entire collection of Hirst works has now been brought together for the first time, to coincide with the exhibition of one of the artist’s most iconic works: the diamond skull, For the Love of God (2007).For all Sales categories excluding Arms & Armour, Coins & Medals, Motor Cars, Motorcycles, and Wine & Whisky: Buyer's Premium Rates25% on the first 0,000 of the Hammer Price20% from 0,001 to ,000,000 of the Hammer Price12% on the excess over ,000,001 of the Hammer Price Payment for purchases may be made in or by (a) cash, (b) cashier's check or money order, (c) personal check with approved credit drawn on a U. bank, (d) wire transfer or other immediate bank transfer, or (e) Visa, Master Card, American Express or Discover credit, charge or debit card.A processing fee will be assessed on any returned checks.Also included is an essay by underwater archaeologist Franck Goddio, who discovered the lost city of Thonis-Heracleion off the Egyptian shore in 2000.

The exhibition of 189 works is now on display in Venice, across the two expansive museum spaces of the Pinault Collection: Punta della Dogana and Palazzo Grassi.Fatal situations are eerily fixed and suspended in time as if the artist were trying, metaphorically, to reverse nature’s cycle.Over a quarter of a century since he emerged onto the contemporary art scene, Hirst’s work has now been rearticulated into a state of the sublime – a new kind of beauty in art history.Hirst seduces spectators with his often disquieting reflections on mortality: cadavers suspended in formaldehyde; butterflies affixed to gloss-painted canvases; pharmaceutical and medical equipment housed in sterile cabinets; flies amassed on pictorial surfaces; images of cancer cells.
