"Untitled" was virtually unknown before it was unveiled at Sotheby's weeks ago. The auction house said it remained in the same private collection since it was bought at auction in 1984 for $19,000.
"When I saw this painting, I was struck with so much excitement and gratitude for my love of art," said Maezawa, who plans to display it in his museum in Chiba, Japan after loaning it to institutions and exhibitions around the world.
Maezawa said he hopes the piece "brings as much joy to others as it does to me."
Like I said his paintings may not appeal to the masses, but it certainly hold dear to those who got what it really meant.
