I am not surprised to see an Andy Warhol original selling for so much, but there comes a point when I start to wonder when artwork becomes THAT valuable.
As an artist myself I understand why art is expensive, especially if it is an original piece. However, I can’t imagine myself selling work that costs so much (even if I got to that level of success). Yes, the artist puts a lot of time and effort into their work, and yes, some supplies are expensive, but honestly, do you know how many cars you could buy with that amount of money? Or houses even…?
What do you think? If you were an artist, would you charge $60 million for a single piece of work?
