Painting

A little song, a little dance, a little seltzer down your pants.

The Spec | Was the record sale of Da Vinci’s Salvator Mundi a bellwether or a freak show?

Now the hubbub has subsided after last week’s sale of Leonardo’s ‘Salvator Mundi’ at Christie’s New York for $450 million, we can assess whether the record-shattering price was an indicator of an impending turn in the boom-bust cycle or merely an extreme example of art market operators conspiring to ease the burden of the super-rich.

Collectables are the only place left to park large amounts of cash without creating market shock. Investing in the "priceless". Gold numismatics are exploding too.
