Edvard Munch's "The Scream" sold at auction this week, setting a mind-twisting record of $119.9 million–the highest price ever paid for a piece of art at auction.
110 million isn't that much money these day , in fact it happens to be the liquidity of every branch at RBC . Coincidently the bus from Union Bay to courtenay costs half that. I looked much like this painting when I got my last visa bill. Either or its by no stretch of the imagination that much money these days. I think it would be better invested in the Economy and create jobs rather then just spent on Art but thats me. Whats that guy's name building that 2 or so billion dollar building in the United states name that is going to put his billion dollars worth of art in?
