Unique works of art have always been extremely highly valued. Especially often, unbelievably shocking price tags are placed on paintings (it doesn’t matter at all whether they were painted by modern artists or classics). And the stranger the plot depicted on the canvas, the higher the final price will be.





However, nothing can stop true connoisseurs of art. Wealthy collectors and museums race to track down and buy rare works of art, not at all embarrassed to pay far-from-modest sums for them. Below is a list of the most expensive paintings that already have happy owners. Look at them carefully and tell me, how much would you be willing to pay for such art?
