Vinsent van Gog was a very prodigious creator during his tragically ending life, but his artistic genius was not recognized for life. He sold only one image. Perhaps he could not even dream that the value of some of his work would reach an astronomical figure of a hundred million dollars in some future time. This is a list of ten of his most expensive paintings.
Postage Portrait of Jozsef Rulen
A portrait of his good friend, a postman in the French town of Arls, Van Gogh painted two years before suicide. Today it belongs to the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and the museum paid $ 114 million for it.
A colorful display of purple potatoes (with only one white) and orange flowers in the left corner, which act like toys in the water, was sold in 1987 to Australian businessman for $ 53 million. He was unable to complete the sum, so he took over the Pol Geti Museum in Los Angeles, where he is still today
Self-portrait without beard
This image was found in 1998 in a private collection and was paid for $ 71 million.
