Picasso's painting "Women of Algiers (Version O)" set a world record for artwork at auction, selling for $179,365,000. The buyer elected to remain anonymous.
I’m just trying to figure out what makes Picasso’s painting worth $179 million. Did he use special paint that cost $110 million? Was the canvas made of money? I don’t get it!
"If I can paint it, it's not art."
To me, Picasso is not an artist because I can paint that same thing. If I can paint it, it's not art. His paintings look like the kind of shit I did in kindergarten with finger-paints.
Who determines when a painter becomes a superstar? What is it about Picasso’s paintings that can make them worth $179 million? It’s not like they can put it on display in their home. It’s worth so much it’ll have to be locked up
Whoever this anonymous person is, I guess it was worth it to them. But I just don’t get it.
