Greater fool fails.
“One of the collections most coveted works, Monet’s “Saule pleureur et bassin de nymphéas,” failed to sell after it was estimated that it would fetch about 40 million pounds. Additionally, Van Gogh’s “Portrait de femme: buste, profil gauche,” from the artist’s trip to Antwerp in 1885, estimated to sell for 8 million to 12 million pounds, also failed to sell. “
Something’s up with the funny money.
China paints duplicates, that’s why there are no great artists anymore.
Theft and fraud.
