In a 1990 Christie’s auction, Vincent van Gogh’s “Portrait du Dr. Gachet” sold for $82.5 million to Ryoei Saito, head of the Japanese firm of Daishowa Paper Manufacturing. It was the first $80 million painting sold at that time. The current record price is approximately $450.3 million paid for Leonardo da Vinci’s Salvator Mundi in November 2017.
