MOST EXPENSIVE PAINTING
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
What is the most expensive painting in the world?
The $100 million mark was broken
for a painting May 05 2004 when Pablo Picasso's Garçon à la Pipe sold for a cool
$104,168,000.00 USD. making it the world's most expensive painting.
Garcon a la Pipe was painted by
Pablo Picasso in 1905 at the age of 24.
Garcon a la Pipe replaced Portrait
of Doctor Gachet by Vincent Van Gogh which sold for a pittance of only $82.5
On October 18, 2006 Steve Wynn,
a Las Vegas mogul, agreed to sell his Picasso 'Le Reve' that he bought in 1997
for $48.4 million for a record setting $139 million.
Now this would have been a new
record except that Steve Wynn backed into the painting and put a 3" tear into it
with his pointy elbow and as a result the record breaking sale did not go
through and Steve Wynn still owns the Picasso.
Currently the most expensive
painting ever sold is No. 5, 1948 by Jackson Pollock which fetched $140 million
on Nov 2, 2006.
