However, the sale of a Picasso painting, Sylvette, smashed the Australia record for the price paid for a piece of art. The painting went for a cool AUD 6.9 million. Now, having admitted to liking Picasso's work, I am not sure I would have parted with almost 7 million large for it! Then again if I had a cool 7 million unspent then maybe I would have splashed out!
Nice painting! Nicer price!
