Van Gogh 5/1 to beat The Scream?
Edvard Munch's ‘The Scream' broke the record for most expensive painting sold at auction and William Hill are now offering odds on who will break the $119.9m price tag.
Jackson Pollock is the 2/1 favourite, with Monet 3/1 and previous record holder, Van Gogh and Picasso both 5/1.
"The world economy is in turmoil and the super-rich seem to think that art is the best investment, so it will come as no great surprise if the record is beaten in the near future," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly.
Which artist's work will break the record sale at auction price ($119.9mn): 2/1 Jackson Pollock; 3/1 Claude Monet; 5/1 Van Gogh; 5/1 Pablo Picasso; 8/1 Damien Hurst; 10/1 Francis Bacon; 10/1 Leonardo Da Vinci; 12/1 Cezanna.
