#19 – “Curtain, Jug and Fruitbowl” – Paul Cezanne – $77.4 million
Isn’t this painting just lovely? Some juicy fruits are shown, a cool jug, and a bowl full of delicious fruits. The author of this painting, Paul Cezanne, must have been a real fruit admirer. What we only find depressive about this painting is that gray background…yuck.
This painting itself was completed in 1894 and it was put up for an auction at Sotheby’s in New York on May 10, 1999. This painting is commonly known as “Curtain, Jug and Fruitbowl,” but its original name is “Rideau, Cruchon et Compotier.”
