Want a $100 million mini painting?!

Want a miniature version of the famous painting, “Sunday Afternoon on La Grande Jatte?” Well, it can be yours for just $100 million…


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

I, personally, am most intrigued by a painting by Georges Seurat called “Le Poseuses Ensemble (petite version).” In this painting, you have 3 nude ladies, blah, blah, blah. It’s pointillism, beautiful, wonderful, whatever.

There is a miniature version of “Sunday Afternoon on La Grande Jatte” in the background! I live in Chicago, currently, and at the Art Institute of Chicago, “La Grande Jatte” is sort of like our “Mona Lisa.”

Seeing “La Grande Jatte” in here is very cute. I don’t know why I very much love seeing it in this context.

And, get this! Apparently this piece is estimated to sell for over $100 million!
