Artnet has compiled a list of the top ten most expensive living female artists, introducing some fresh faces in the list. According to their own price database, Cady Noland continues — since an earlier, midyear assessment — to hold the top spot with her May sale of “Bluewald” (1989)  for close to $9.8 million, and Yayoi Kusama comes in second with the sale of “RED B” (1960), for $7 million. The site deems 2015 “Yayoi Kusama’s year,” with the artist selling an impressive 488 lots at auction, with a sum total of $58 million. Artnet bills itself as the leading resource for the international art market, and the principal platform for art auctions on the Internet.
