Sale of privately-owned Scream

The sale of Petter Olsen’s Scream by Sotheby’s carries a $80 million price tag. While the highest pre-sale estimate the auction house have ever put on a painting, this is nevertheless ludicrously low when you consider the top price paid for a painting, Cezanne’s Card Players, was  $250 million last year. Fifteen paintings have already broken the $80 million barrier.  I’ll bet on $300 million.
