Juan Gris’s vibrant painting entitled Violon et Guitare sold for an astounding $28,642,500 Million at Christie’s New York on 3rd November 2010.
Violin and Guitar (1913) was actually a personal favourite of Juan Gris and is widely believed to be one of the most significant cubist still lifes to ever come to auction.
“It is a symphony of colour, line and symbols. A very sophisticated piece but at the same time very sensual,” declared Christie’s Conor Jordan.
The last time a Gris painting came to auction was in 2008 with the painting “Book, Pipe and Glasses”, which sold for $20.8 Million.
