Ladies and gentlemen, the time has come for another painting by meteoric art icon Jean-Michel Basquiat to hit the auction block. The unusual, and largely unseen, work, entitled “Monticello,” depicts the white outline of a nickel against a black background, depicted in Basquiat’s typical street-inspired scribble. But the going rate for this five cent coin is a bit more than you’d expect — the pricey work is set to fetch a cool $1,242,000.
