We would like to introduce a new concept of “infographic” (information + graphics), which is a visual representation of information, data or knowledge intended to present information quickly and clearly.
We now use “infographics” to showcase the big picture for the new investment directions, opportunities, and concepts to maximize the investment return.
Today's infographic is an intriguing infographic,which won a gold medal at Malofiej 21by Simon Scarr for SCMP(South China Morning Post), looking at the prolific career of Pablo Picasso who is responsible for 5,717 paintings.
Picasso still remained the top-ranked artist, based on sales of his works at auctions. This is not just an art, but it is also a lifetime investment.
From this infographic, we have found a few key points that are worth of our attention.
- Most of his lifetime famous paintings are oil paintings (4111 pieces).
- Most of his popular and expensive paintings are during his Classicism and Surrealism Period.
- Famous paintings are a very good investment, as the value grows in time.
In 1955, Picasso painted reinterpretations of Eugène Delacroix’s Les femmes d'Alger,
which critics have said were his finest post-war achievement. The entire series of Les Femmes d'Alger
was bought by Victor and Sally Ganz from the Galerie Louise Leiris in Paris for only $212,500 in June 1956.
1955年，毕加索以Eugène Delacroix 的阿尔及利亚女人
的系列画作在1967年6月由Victor和Sally Ganz从巴黎的Galerie Louise Leiris购得，当时只要212,500美元。
But, from our previous post in March 2017, Pablo Picasso
’s painting Les femmes d'Alger (Version 'O')
was sold for $179.3 millions, setting a new world auction record for any work of art ever sold at auction on 11 May 2015 in New York.
Only 18 years ago,the painting (Version 'O')
was sold for $31.9 million in November 1997, as part of the Ganz collection, at Christie's in New York, which is about 562% in its growth value.
Moreover, Picasso’s “Nude, Green Leaves and Bust” painted in 1932, was sold in $106.5 millions with auction house premium, which was the most expensive work ever sold in 2010.
Of course, the value of Picasso’s other oil paintings during Classicism and Surrealism Period and Later works including his “Nude, Green Leaves and Bust” must go up quite a lot until now.
