Since 'affordable' is a relative term, I thought I'd include this little piece, on the blog. On Wednesday at Christie's, 'Salvator Mundi' by Leonardo da Vinci is up for grabs. Pre-sale estimates are around $100 million. I'll go out on a limb and say that if a Basquiat can sell for $110.5 million, the final price with hammer, will start with a '2'. So if you are looking to spend a few hundred million and don't want to deal with the pesky task of building an arena or relocating a franchise, this may be your opportunity to own a da Vinci!
Art isn't purchased at big-box stores. This blog is for collectors like me, who collect on a budget.
