In daily moderation we are going to cover the 10 most expensive paintings in the world. How one can define the price of a painting? The process is mostly unknown by rational people. One thing is very obvious that the price of painting increases after the death of that particular painter. It is very unfortunate for an artist that most of the time he does not get the recognition at his life time. In some cases they led a very poor insolvent life. We also became amazed by seeing a $50 painting in his life that sold over $100 million after his death.
