New York Times reports: A painting that Picasso created in a single day in March 1932 became the most expensive work of art ever sold at auction on Tuesday night.
Christie’s, six bidders vied for “Nude, Green Leaves and Bust,” which depicts the artist’s mistress Marie-Thérèse Walter, reclining naked. When the canvas last changed hands, in 1951, it sold for $19,800. But this time, “Nude, Green Leaves and Bust” brought $106.5 million.
Who knows. You could be the next high seller at Christie's. Old Pablo didn't necessarily know he would achieve such fame. He just kept putting it out. Create, create, create!
