Does anyone reading this have an extra 45 million dollars laying around? Because this is a great investment. Like Oprah you will probably double your money in 10 to 20 years. If you remember Oprah recently sold ‘Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer’ to a Chinese investor for $150 million which she bought in 2006 for $87 million…not a bad return.
So maybe this Klimt painting ‘Bauerngarten’ is a steal at $45 million.
Bauerngarten—defined by the auction house as one of Klimt’s best landscapes and one of the finest works by him ever to appear at auction—was first exhibited in the famous 1908 “Kunstschau” exhibition in Vienna.
