Yes, that’s right. Over $106 million. By an anonymous bidder. It’s over 100 times more than what we should write about here on this blog, but it is such a stunning auction event that we had to share it. So here it goes:
Pablo Picasso’s painting: “Nude, Green Leaves and Bust” sold for $106,482,500 by Christie’s at the “Property from the Collection of Mrs. Sidney F. Brody” auction on May 4. There were other stunning sales but this one clearly stands out.

Wayne Thiebaud’s painting titled “Ripley Street Ridge” was bought for $1,022,500 during Christie’s Post-War And Contemporary Art auction in New York on May 14. I for one love this painting a lot. As the lot note describes it well, Thiebaud captures something very uniquely Californian so well on this painting. And it’s more than the obvious, the landscape and lights.
