Obra de arte mais cara de sempre?

Evidence gathers as to the sale of Cézanne’s “The Card Players” (1892-93) which belonged to the late George Embiricos. The last of a series of five paintings showing Provençal peasants immersed in a card game, it seems indeed to have been sold by the Greek shipping magnate before his death earlier this year, as initially revealed in this column. The price, given as a rumour by the insider newsletter Baerfaxt, was a whopping $250m, and I hear it might even have been higher. If so, this is by far the highest price ever paid for a work of art. Who bought it? For the moment, this remains a mystery.
