As does a painting of a French Poodle by Gustave Caillebotte

One of the more intriguing year-end lists is one titled “The 10 Most Expensive Art Works Sold in 2019.” It’s a reminder of the haves and have not’s, documenting the rarified air of the blue chip art market and auction house records from the previous 12 months. The top price getter was a painting by French Impressionist Claude Monet, with one of his iconic haystack paintings fetching $110,474,000. In fifth place at slightly less than half that amount is a work by Pablo Picasso, titled Femme Au Chien from 1962.
