Pablo Picasso Painting Boy With PipeBoy with Pipe or Garcon a la Pipe, 1905. A painting by Pablo Ruiz Picasso

In 1905, soon after moving to Montmartre, France, the 24 year old Pablo Picasso painted what would someday become the highest selling piece of art in history. In 2004, this amazing piece of Picasso art brought in over $100 million shattering the record previously held for a work of art. (See Vincent van Gogh) It is oil on canvas whose subject, a local boy who would visit Picasso’s studio, is holding a pipe and wearing a garland or wreath of flowers. Though many art critics say the high price is due more to the name than to the painting, this Rose Period piece is still an amazing work of art.

Pepe Karmel, a Picasso expert, was quoted in the Washington Post: "I'm stunned," he said, "that a pleasant, minor painting could command a price appropriate to a real masterwork by Picasso. This just shows how much the marketplace is divorced from the true values of art."

 

Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life. - Pablo Ruiz Picasso
