In January 2021, Italian Renaissance master Sandro Botticelli’s Portrait of a Young Man Holding a Roundel sold at Sotheby’s in New York for a record-breaking $92.2 million. The rare portrait said to be one of the last secular Botticelli portraits in private hands, went to a Russian buyer bidding on the phone with Sotheby’s London-based specialist Lilija Sitnika, hammering at its pre-sale estimate of $80 million. Coming from the collection of the late real estate developer Sheldon Solow, who bought it in 1982 for £810,000 ($1.3 million), the painting broke the artist’s previous record of $10.4 million, made by the sale of the Rockefeller Madonna at Christie’s in 2013.

Gustav Klimt’s Birch Forest (1903) painting set a sales record for the artist in Nov 2022. In one of my favourite paintings, Klimt creates a magical forest where the viewer is submerged in it and becomes part of it.
