In tenth place is the “Reclining Nude” by Amedeo Modigliani. It was first shown to the public in 1917. In 2015 it was sold to the Chinese billionaire Liu Yitsyan for $170.4 million.
And the first place for the world’s most expensive painting belongs to the painting “Savior of the World” by the legendary Leonardo da Vinci. Acquired in the 1500s and long considered lost, it was sold at Christie’s in 2017 for a record $453 million. The work was bought by the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud through his Minister of Culture.
