This has been called the most expensive private art collection ever sold and for good reason 🤯
In Episode 3, I discussed the Paul G. Allen collection that was going up for auction at Christie’s in November. The estimate was that everything that was sold would all fetch $1 billion cumulatively.
Well, the auction was split into two separate parts: November 9th and November 10th. On the 9th, it surpassed the $1 billion mark. The total total for the day was $1,506,386,000.
So, on the second and final day of the auction, the total from that day was $115,863,500.
For both parts of the auction, all sales totaled $1,622,249,500.
