#16 – “A Wheatfield with Cypresses” – Vincent van Gogh – $84.1 million
Again, we have another painting whose author is Vincent van Gogh on our list. This painting depicts a wheat field surrounded by beautiful cypress trees and above the field a couple of surreal clouds only Vincent van Gogh could paint that way.
The interesting story about this painting is that it was painted during Vincent van Gogh’s stay at the Saint Paul De Mausole mental asylum, located in Arles, France. This beautiful, but expensive painting, was sold in 1993 by a man named Emil Georg Bührle’s son to another man called Walter H. Anneberg, for “only” $84.1 million.
