We have finally found something that even David Choe may not be able to afford yet.  It has been reported by Vanity Fair that in 2011, the royal family of Qatar purchased Paul Cezanne’s painting The Card Players from the estate of George Embiricos for $250 million.  That is the highest known price that has ever been paid for a work of art.  They apparently outbid both Larry Gagosian and William Acquavella for the privilege of buying the piece.  The oil-rich collectors have been on a cultural spending spree as of late to fill the walls of their museums and it only looks to be escalating.  Start getting used to hearing about more stories like this one.
