La Lecture by Picasso

 

It’s good, but is it really worth it?

The value of something is equal to what someone else is willing to pay.

This painting by Picasso was sold at auction a few days ago for about 40 million dollars. This is the same as the combined life earnings of about 100 people (before tax) in the Western world. In a poor country it is probably more than 1,000 people (or families).
