An Irish billionaire John Magnier is selling a painting (Modigliani) of a nude lady, estimated at £110 million. You may have seen images of it plastered around London. This 1917 masterpiece depicts a nude lady posing for less that £110 million. John Magnier paid £20 million for the painting fifteen years ago and is now cashing in.
If you happen to be in the Big Apple on May 14 and struggling to decide what to do with your pocket change, the famous Sotheby’s will be on hand to tempt you.
This is a considerable amount of change for one piece of art but we’re sure you’ll agree that it perfectly illustrates the point… beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
Last November, one of Leonardo da Vinci’s masterpieces was sold for over £330 million… the most expensive work of art ever sold. The total global arts sales for 2017 was a staggering £47 billion.
John Magnier, we think your wife (also a horse lover) would love the Medium Saddle to hang on her arm?
