  1. Christies and other auctioneers are business, not art collections. They love to drive prices high on exotic tingel-tangel.

    If you can sell a famous painting for X+20 million $$ then why sell it to a museum for only X$$?

    Apparently there are a lot of people in the world who have earned too much money and who want to buy something beautiful, something which other people will admire.
