These Masterpieces Are the Most Expensive Paintings Ever Sold

Pablo Picasso’s Les Repos, $ 36,920,500

Pablo Picasso’s masterpiece Le Repos, painted in 1932, was put on auction at Sotheby’s New York in 2018 and sold to a collector for the price of $36,920,500 with fees included, nearly five times the dollar figure it fetched at auction in 2000.

The work portrays Picasso’s beloved “Golden Muse” and mistress Marie-Thérèse Walter sleeping with her head (depicted in a Grecian profile) rested on her forearm as a perfect embodiment of serenity and calmness, physical beauty and sexual attractiveness.
