Last month Albert Giacometti's famous statue won the award of being the most expensive piece of art ever sold bringing in a whopping $104,300,000 at auction. Isn't it fascinating that art can still bring in record dollar amounts in the worst economic conditions since the Great Depression? GOOD magazine created a great infographic showing the top ten most expensive pieces of art on the ever sold and the rest of the dollar amounts are just as staggering. I had always dreamed of one day owning a van Gogh or a Renoir but it seems like I'll be settling for some stuff I find on Etsy. Wow.
