Without commenting on the effect of record breaking Art auctions, either on the Art or the Art Market, here is a look at three of them:
One of the art world’s most recognizable images — Edvard Munch’s “The Scream” — Sold for a record $119,922,500 at auction in New York City. The buyer’s name was not released.
PICASSO, NUDE, GREEN LEAVES and BUST
Pablo Picasso, Nude, Green Leaves and Bust sold for a record $106,482,500 on 4 May 2010, in our New York Impressionist and Modern Art Evening Sale, becoming the most expensive Pablo Picasso painting ever sold, in addition to breaking the previous world record for any work of art sold at auction.
