A $1 BILLION art collection is for sale!

This week on the podcast, we’re talking about a $1 BILLION ART COLLECTION that’s being sold at Christie’s this November!

If you had a billion dollars, what art would you buy?


There are a series of paintings that are going to be auctioned at Christie’s in November. These are all from the Paul G. Allen collection.

Allen was the co-founder of Microsoft, so he has buckoo bucks, like money galore. He died in 2018, so now his massive art collection is being auctioned off.

His collection spans 500 years of art. Artists included are: Jan Brueghel the Younger, Vincent van Gogh, Georges Seurat, Gustav Klimt, Jasper Johns, Georgia O’Keefe, Louise Bourgeois, and many, many others.

This collection is also very interesting because it’s slated to sell for over $1 billion…a billion with a “b.” There are 150 artworks that will be sold.

Allegedly, all the proceeds will be donated to philanthropy. That’s what Paul G. Allen had in his will, I guess, that he wanted all the proceeds to go to philanthropy.
