Top Five Most Expensive Paintings in The World

The price of expensive paintings continue to grow especially if the piece is re-exposed. Present owners who die or who continue to sell them put a bigger price compared at the time that they bought it, and once they are auctioned, they will even grow. For this post, I will share to you, five of the priciest paintings in the whole world.

Les Joueurs De Cartes or The Card Players

Painted by French post-impressionist painter Paul Cèzanne, the piece is reported to cost $259 to $320 million. Its exact price is not known. The artist painted a series of it, and this is one of it. Qatar’s Royal Family bought one piece, and it roughly cost over $200 million. It is known to be expensive since it is one of Cèzanne’s last masterpiece before he stopped painting.


La Rêve or The Dream

This painting is one of Pablo Picasso’s masterpiece. Known to cost as much as $155 million, the subject of the painting is said to have been Picasso’s lover Marie-Therese Walter. It was damaged by owner Steve Wynn, preventing it from being bought by Steven Cohen. Pablo Picasso is one of the greatest artists of all time. He has made over a thousand paintings alone excluding his sculptures and drawings.

Three Studies of Lucian Freud

When it was sold last November 2013, it reached its highest price, which was $142.4 million. It was painted by British painter Francis Bacon. From the name itself, the subject of the piece is Lucian Freud, one of Bacon’s closest friends but considered as his rival artistically. The two artists loved to make each other and their friends the subject of their paintings. This piece had another partner, but it was not seen by anyone since the year 1992.

No. 5

It may have an odd name, but it is reported to have a value of $140 million. It was painted by Jackson Pollock in year 1948. He is one of the painters responsible to start the abstract style. He struggled to earn popularity for his work, but he started the drip technique hence the “number” series which then led to his fame.

Woman III

As scary looking as it looks, and you may think that it is done by a five-year old  messing with a water color paint, it is the work of world known artist Willem De Kooning, and it is reported to have cost over $137 million. De Kooning painted six Woman series, and Woman III is the only piece today that is owned privately.

Famous Painting

There are a lot reasons for paintings to be branded as expensive. They are either expensive expression-wise, artist wise, or mystery wise. The longer they to exist, the higher their value.

The Must-Have Traits Of A Professional Artist  

IMAGE 1What makes an artist professional or amateur? How do you differentiate the two? A cousin’s friend had a bad experience just last month when she commissioned for an artist to do a portrait of her son. What happened was a disaster. The painting hardly looked like her adorable son, and it was delivered late (it was supposed to be unveiled on the kid’s birthday party).

I’ve always taken pride of my work. As a professional artist, that’s the one thing that will differentiate me from all the others out there. A true artist is hard working. We don’t wait for inspiration to come to us. Instead, we seek it aggressively. Even when I was on my diet program and drinking only SKINNY SHAKE, I never stopped working on my art.

A true artist doesn’t stop working even when a commissioned job is already done. I paint every day, and that’s why I think I am mildly successful in what I do. Sure, we need a regular job to pay for the bills, but art can never be set aside. Find time to cultivate it, or the inspiration will be lost on you.

However, of course, a true artist knows not to get too attached to their work because they recognize that in the near future, they would have to sell it. They know how to differentiate their passion for the arts and the need for their family to eat three times a day. There are still more important things for them than their works, and they don’t get lost in that world.

IMAGE 2Other artists become frustrated when they don’t get as successful as Jake Raymor, whose works were admired by many . A true artist is patient, and he knows that success doesn’t come quickly and easily. The expectation of instant success is what drives an artist mad. A professional artist doesn’t treat their art as passion or hobby or interest. It’s also a business. It’s a way to earn a living (unless you’re incredibly rich, and you can just paint your whole life without thinking about the bills).

Being a professional artist is all about taking your art and yourself seriously. As an artist, you must learn to act accordingly at all times. Be as professional as your art. Listen to clients the way you want your art to be heard. Because in the end, even the greatest artists of our time have to prove themselves continuously.

The Very Unusual Art in the Orleans House Gallery

unusualI was in Richmond a few days ago to visit some relatives. It was a long travel from home. So, when my partner and I arrived at the hotel, I decided to postpone for the next day all of our scheduled activities. However, my partner was so excited to explore the place. Almost immediately after our arrival, she decided to go out with one of my cousins who drove us to the hotel earlier.

After a good rest in my hotel room without any problems about my snoring, thanks to the tips provided by http://www.goodmorningsnoresolutionreviews.com, I decided to get out for a walk. My partner was not around yet, so there I was, alone in exploring Richmond. I was really surprised how the place changed since my last visit there with my parents a few decades ago.

I went to a popular local food chain for a quick meal because I was definitely starving from all that sleep brought about by following the recommendations I learned in Good Morning snore solution reviews. Then, I suddenly found myself in an animated conversation with a nice old couple whom I just met after they complimented on the artistic wallpaper I had in my tablet. It turned out they were art nuts like myself.

We discussed a lot about art-related topics and even photography. During our talk, they mentioned a new art exhibit in Orleans House Gallery. After bidding each other goodbye, I went to Orleans House Gallery where the couple pointed me to.

There were a lot of exhibits worth noting in the place. However, one that really stood out in the crowd that day was the My Little Minotaur art made by Patrick Folkard.

My Little Minotaur was a very unusual work, and some may even find it weird or creepy. That’s because the piece featured a surreal theme, which showed the head of a calf attached to a baby’s torso.

new orleansThe very strange art made use of the combination of papier maché, paint, balsa wood and plastic doll body to emulate a baby version of the notorious minotaur in Greek mythology. With it was the caption, “Minotaur – metamorphosis of man and beast.” It also carried the the questions, “Did he look like this at birth or did his bovine features develop later? And did the Greeks have dolls depicting this strange creature?”

I was lost for words with what I’ve seen because I was partly amazed and creeped by the sight of it. However, it was still nice to see something new for a change.

The baby minotaur exhibit was selling for £740. Although it depicted a rare theme, I didn’t want to get caught near it, so I never had the thought of spending my money on it. And yes, I had a disturbing nightmare about it by the time I went to bed later.

Art & Painting

I started doing crafts when I was in third grade. My mom was fond of doing little craft projects for our house, so I always helped her out. I remember that we would spend afternoons after school doing all those amazing projects—stained glass, cross stitch, paper mâché, etc. It has been one of the best memories of my childhood.

paper mache

I guess that what made me appreciate Art painting, and that what made me delve into painting when I was in high school. As you see, art is the main thing in my life now. I accept painting commissions from clients—mostly portraits of individuals or families. Aside from those, I also delve into events planning because that’s how I can maximize my love of doing crafts and trinkets.

Some of my friends also tap my “talents,” so to speak, whenever they decide to get married because they enjoy the necklaces, bracelets and rings I make from colorful beads and crystals.

A Beginner’s Love for Jewelry Making

Lately, I started taking classes on jewelry designing. I’ve always had a great love for accessories, so I wanted to add something to my arsenal. My friends have cajoled me to take those classes because they love my beadwork, so I guess I can just start adding this to my business.

One of the things I learned from my class is the importance of identifying the kind of artist you are. Who are you as an artist, as a jewelry designer? What kind of accessory or jewelry you would love to make? Do you like the classic or modern look? Are your works customizable?

You have to define your artist’s view, and that will pave the way for your works to be known too in the industry. I have been recently tapped to design a series of rings for a charity organization, and I enjoyed it very much. Aside from doing something I love, I was also able to help a lot of people.


Why I Decided to Blog

I wanted to share my experiences in arts, crafts and painting. I want people to see that this is not something that should intimidate them. I want them to appreciate art and its importance in our everyday life.

This blog is dedicated to sharing my journey on how I fell in love with the arts, on how I went from doing paper mâché to appreciating the works of Michaelangelo, on how I decided to take a route into a life of arts, and on why I risked so many things in my life to pursue my love for art.
