Have at least $100 million? You can purchase the only da Vinci currently in private hands, one of fewer than 20 known da Vincis in existence

Well, ladies and gentlemen, it is a historic day in the annals of art: a new record was set for the sale of any painting, whether at auction or private: the da Vinci painting "Salvator Mundi" sold for ... ready for it ... $400 million; when you add the auction-house fee that the buyer has to pay, the (as yet anonymous) buyer will fork over an astounding $450.3 million

The Phillips Collection in Washington, which owns Renoir's "Luncheon of the Boating Party," just had a big exhibit surrounding that painting.

I saw the painting when I was in Washington last January for the inauguration (eat your heart out, n_l), but wasn't there in the past few months and did not see the exhibit, which ended last week.

Here is the link to the exhibit, which is interesting

Was at MoMA on Tuesday with Miss Hungary.

The highlight of our visit was the eight Giorgio de Chricos – all from his metaphysical period, of course. All are part of MoMA's collection, but I'd never seen eight displayed at one time. And I'd never seen some of these before.

I can't post pics directly here but I'll provide the links

https://www.moma.org/collection/works/78738

https://www.moma.org/collection/works/78736

https://www.moma.org/collection/works/80419

https://www.moma.org/collection/works/80587

https://www.moma.org/collection/works/79011

https://www.moma.org/collection/works/78834

https://www.moma.org/collection/works/80589

https://www.moma.org/collection/works/80591

Much of MoMA's de Chirico works come from the collection of the late James Thrall Soby, an art historian and assistant curator at MoMA, who also wrote an indispensable book on de Chrico's metaphysical period.

We also saw the usual MoMA treats, like Hopper's "New York Movie" https://www.moma.org/collection/works/79616  

Wyeth's "Christina's World" https://www.moma.org/audio/playlist/2/342
Van Gogh's "The Starry Night" https://www.moma.org/collection/works/79802

Miss Hungary was sad to hear that Dali's "The Persistence of Memory" is on loan now in Paris (not sure which museum; n_l can check on it and report back to us  ;) ) but I bought her a poster of it  :)

Being a modern-art museum, there were of course lots of shitty things there, including stuff known as "abstraction" (I would't even sully the word "artwork" by referring to them as such), we were sure to skip right past that crap  :)

Nice - did you feel the same inspiration as Leone did?

So it was New York Movie.

I googled the persistence of memory associated with some French museums names, no results.
I’ll go to the museum of Orsay in a few days (I own the unlimited card so I go there every few weeks) and check out if it’s there.

The Chiricos room is something, isn’t it?

Yeah, the de Chirico room is awesome. Thanks for informing me of it  O0

Sorry I didn’t catch the name of the Parisian museum. I just asked a MoMA staffer where “The Persistence of Memory” is and she simply said “Paris.” I should have asked which museum.

Yes, “New York Movie” is one of my favorite Hoppers  :)

Actually, there were 10 de Chiricos on display at MoMA, not eight. Here are the two I forgot to include in the earlier post

What was it Leone said? GBU is “de Chirico rides the range” :D
