Art and Architecture Lectures and Tours

The World’s Most Expensive Art

Is a small piece of canvas worth as much as the world’s largest super yacht?  In the last few years, plenty of buyers think so. The sums are astronomical, but these are top class works and this lecture is an excuse to examine some beautiful and varied art. We’ll include Picasso, Cezanne, Rembrandt, Leonardo, Modigliani, Klimt, bacon Gauguin and others. All held together by the common thread of changing hands for at least $100 million each.

In the lecture we’ll look at the art, the artists, the stories behind the sales, the buyers and the sellers. I’ll try to answer the question “Are they really worth it?”
