Carol Vogel has written a short article entitled “At $106.5 Million, a Picasso Sets an Auction Record” in the Art & Design section of The New York Times discussing the sale at Christie’s of the painting “Nude, Green Leaves and Bust” which Picasso painted in a single day in 1932.  Vogel also touches on the other sales of the event, including two sculptures by Alberto Giacometti, a painting by Edvard Munch and others.  The last time the Picasso’s “Nude, Green Leaves and Bust” changed hands, in 1951, it sold for $19,800.  Is it inflation, or is the painting that much better today than it was then?
