Potato #345 was captured by portrait photographer Kevin Abosch, who revealed that the print has been sold to a businessman for the equivalent of around £760,000.
The deal emerged over dinner with the unnamed client last year.
Abosch told yesterday’s Sunday Times: ‘It’s not the first time that someone has bought the art right off my wall.
‘We had two glasses of wine and he said: “I really like that.”
‘Two more glasses of wine and he said: “I really want that”.’
The Dublin-based photographer told the paper that the potato had been delivered to his home with a batch of organic vegetables.
