About Aurothioglucose
The spot painting by Damien Hirst is one of a series that Hirst has created throughout his career.

The 2008 work by Damien Hirst was one of the lots in the Sotheby's auction called "Beautiful Inside My Head Forever" where the artist sidestepped the traditional gallery system to sell works directly through an auction house.

Damien Hirst said "After the success of the Pharmacy auction, I always felt I would like to do another auction.
It’s a very democratic way to sell art and it feels like a natural evolution for contemporary art. Although there is
risk involved, I embrace the challenge of selling my work in this way. I never want to stop working with my
galleries. This is different. The world’s changing, ultimately I need to see where this road leads."


(His Pharmacy auction sold 168 lots through Sotheby's, raising $20,063,528 in 2004)
