    I love the "real" Scream. I like this sketch, too.

    It's actually not a record high. According to wikipedia this Cézanne piece sold for a record £160m (more than $250 million) to the Qatari royal family.

    Munch's The Scream sells for record $120-million

    That is interesting.
    Are there any other instances of that in well known pieces?
    Van Gogh's sunflowers, for instance...

    Instead of buying a painting for novelty sake.
    It wasn't for novelty sake, in all likelihood. It was an investment. The guy hoped to sell it for more millions eventually.

    At that level of prices, it's never about artwork; it's gambling on the artwork appreciating in future so it could be sold for profit. So hype helps that; the more expensive it is to begin with, the more it can be expected to appreciate.

    A faaaar better painting than The Scream. It's in a different league altogether. But £160m...

    Pricing art is nuts anyway.
    I spend as much time painting a picture that turns out well as I do one that doesn't. They go on the gallery wall at the same price.
    A little picture of mine can be better than a big one - but I have to price it by the square yard for the gallery system.

    Once you get away from the man hours spent, how do you place a value on these things?
    Ultimately an object is worth what people are prepared to pay for it.

    In that sense 'The Scream' is worth what it's just sold for.

    I like The Scream far more than anything by Cezanne but I guess that's just me.

    I think 'The Scream's great! It's a very powerful image. What is a shame is that once something becomes so obscenely 'valued' it tends to echo in our opinions of it, and objectivity becomes rather diluted.
