How to identify the most expensive paintings in the world
The most expensive painting in the history of art is going for $13.5 million.
That’s the price tag on the painting “The Birth of Venus” by German artist Hans Christian Andersen.
The painting, which was originally painted in 1780, was purchased by a private collector in 2014 for $1.2 million.
The art world is in awe of Andersen’s work and the auction house is selling it at a record-breaking price.
The auction house said it will auction the work to raise funds for a children’s hospital in California.
The work is a masterpiece of a German painter who made a name for himself by portraying human beings as beautiful and flawed.
It is one of the most valuable works of art ever owned by a non-European country.
The works are sold through the auction company Art-Auctions.
The price of the work is $13,500,000.
Art-Sale, which is owned by the Art Museum of Chicago, said it is not auctioning Andersen’s masterpiece for the first time.
It will auction it for the second time at a later date.
It was originally purchased by the family of American painter Michael O’Donoghue, who is also a former director of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
