L'Allée des Alyscamps(with detail), 1888, oil on canvas, 91.7 x 73.5 cm, private collection.
This masterpiece by the Dutch post-impressionist was sold to a private Asian collector for a total of $ 66.3 million at a New York auction, becoming Van Gogh’s most expensive work sold since 1998. Van Gogh painted L'Allée des Alyscamps while working side-by-side with Paul Gauguin in Arles during their short-lived but intense collaboration.
Plenty of that cash has been coming from China at auctions, where buyers purchased 22% of all global art last year.
