Cezzane, van Gogh, Picasso, Pollock… However, there are a lot of famous and expensive paintings that haven’t ever been purchased.
Everybody knows that the most expensive painting was The Card Players, a painting by Cezanne sold for $259 million in April 2011. Today, its price is estimated in $268 million. The second one is a painting by Pollock, No. 5, 1948 on November 2, 2006. Third one is Woman III by Kooning and fourth one is a painting by Picasso, La Réve. We can continue with the official list and we would find works by Van Gogh, Renoir, Munch, Klimt… and even paintings by Titian. But I ask myself, what is the price of The Guernica or The Sistine Chapel? We usually say that there’s no price for these masterpieces but I would like to establish a Baroque, genuine and very personal list of my favorite paintings ever. Of course, I cannot estimate a price, I recognize that maybe never a person can buy these works but… who knows?
Las Meninas, by Diego Velazquez
The masterpiece of Spanish Baroque master Diego Velazquez. Museo del Prado, Madrid. I think it’s not too big, then it would be great for your entrance hall in your palace of Florence.
Sixtine Chapel. Creation of Adam
Michelangelo’s painting is one of the most remembered works of the Humankind. Vatican City. The problem would be: how can we move the whole Sistine Chapel? It’s a problem but, as everybody knows, there’s nothing that money cannot buy.
Mona Lisa, by Leonardo
How much would you pay for Leonardo da Vinci’s painting in your living room? Even if I were its owner, I would prevent people to smoke there.
Guernica, by Picasso
Picasso’s masterpiece. I know it’s not about a nice subject but, think about it, Spanish Government is out of money and maybe you can get a bargain if you offer a couple of millions.
Rubens’ Three Graces
Yes, we know none of them is Gisele Bundchen but if you are so rich to buy this painting, your couple might be very beautiful. Enjoy her/his and buy this painting if you can. It’s a secure business.
What’s your favourite? Have you got a deal to offer to Spanish President Mariano Rajoy? Sorry but if you read Spanish newspapers you were, at least, smiling (maybe crying?). Having or not Mona Lisa in your living room, we wish you all a fantastic day, dear Yareah friends.
