Isn’t this painting so sad and blue? Well, Pablo Picasso made it on purpose to look sad and blue. This painting belongs to the series of Picasso’s paintings from his “Blue Period.” The “Blue Period” was a period in Picasso’s life when he had faced with both depression and poverty, which were the result of the suicide of his friend, Carlos Casagemas.

In the year of 1907, this painting was acquired by a man called Josef Stansky. From 1945 to 1962, the painting was owned by Paulo Picasso, Pablo Picasso’s son. In 1989, the painting was sold for $84.8 million by Fredrik Roos to a man named Tomonori Tsurumaki.

  1. You are far away of having traced down the most expansive painting in the world! To my knowledge, this happens to be a work of Paul Gauguin painted in 1892 and entitled “Nafea faa ipoipo” (which in tahitian means “When will you marry”). It was once owned by swiss collector Rudolf Staehelin, who bought it in 1917, and sold in 2015 by his grandson to the emir of Quatar for an alleged price of $300 million.
