One of the most famous pieces in the auction was a Picasso painting. This painting sold for nearly $180 million, breaking the previous record for a painting by the artist. The artist’s painting, “Salvator Mundi,” is now one of the most expensive pieces ever sold at an auction. This painting was purchased by former Qatari Prime Minister Sheikh Hamad Bin Jassim Al Thani, who has an impressive art collection. The collection includes eleven paintings by the most important and influential modern artists.
