The record auction price for a work by David Hockney has been broken twice in one evening as two pieces fetched more than 40.1 million dollars (£29.6m).

The celebrated British artist’s landmark 1990 masterpiece Pacific Coast Highway And Santa Monica went under the hammer for 28.5 million dollars (£21m) – more than twice the earlier benchmark – during a sale at Sotheby’s New York on Wednesday.

The record sale came shortly after a 1978 work titled Piscine de Medianoche (Paper Pool 30) was snapped up for 11.7 million dollars (£8.6m) – around 30,000 dollars (£22,000) more than the previous record set by his Yorkshire landscape, Woldgate Woods, at Sotheby’s in 2016.
