My new acquisition at 450.3 million

It's just an investment, a place to park some money (OK, a lot of money).  Sure to appreciate in value.

Similarly, Manhattan is getting overrun with global money.  Tons of new housing skyscrapers; even if fully bought, I'll bet most of the living spaces are not occupied most of the year.

yep.

I'd rather invest in art than real estate but both are skyrocketing. In fact, contemporary art is a surer bet at this point compared to more blue chip markets, but then again a significant Da Vinci obviously doesn't come up for sale often.

Yeah, with only 20 or so known painting by Da Vinci, there probably won't be another for sale.

It's a genuine Leonard Da Vinci.

I was thinking of this when this was sold yesterday.

I wonder if there is any chance that it is a forgery.

I saw a real Da Vinci drawing a couple of weeks ago. It was at an exhibition in Amsterdam which had as topic exceptional drawings from history. I really liked the drawing but to be honest I preferred the ones of Rembrandt which were there as well.

If the original is worth $450 million, the color print I made from this thread ought to fetch a few hundred thousand, right?

It is damaged and was heavily repainted.

I saw the famous Mona Lisa (La Gioconda ) at the Louvre, Paris  

'Salvator Mundi' is currently the most expensive work ever sold (don't like it at all).
The places two, three and four are: 'Interchanged' by Willem de Kooning (254 million euros), 'The card players' by Paul Cézanne (219 million euros) and 'Nafea faa ipoipo' by Paul Gauguin (178 million euros).

My favorite is 'Nafea faa ipoipo' by Gauguin.

Hard to believe, but the art biz is even more disgustingly sleazy than the music biz.
