Picasso Painting Sells for $23 Million Setting Record

A luxury home isn’t complete without a one of a kind piece of fine art. But one fine art collector believed his home wasn’t complete until it dawned an original Picasso painting valued at $23 million. The unnamed collector purchased the 1967 Picasso work featuring a naked man playing a recorder for his nude lover in November 2011 for $23 million, setting a record.

According to the premier issue of luxury lifestyle magazine Bloomberg Pursuits, the world’s biggest fine art dealers will be uniting for the fourth in a series of Picasso exhibitions at Larry Gagosian’s galleries in New York and London. The expectations for the next event to take place on April 30 are very high. The first three events attracted a total of 260,000 visitors for about 300 artworks. These events with the participation of Picasso’s heirs and noted Picasso biographer John Richardson elevated by the unrivaled marketing strategies of Larry Gagosian have made Picasso the best-selling artist of the past decade.

Property investors and fine art collectors might be interested to learn about Hurwitz James Company’s newest listing, The Bradbury Estate, which boasts several Venetian plaster masterpieces and domes with hand-painted frescos.

LA Times Spotlights Bradbury Estate & Its Recherché Trout Pond

The Bradbury Estate in the San Gabriel Valley is rapidly making waves in the real estate world. Recently listed by Donald Abbey with president of Hurwitz James Company Bob Hurwitz, the sprawling Palladian Neo-Classical style estate is gaining earnest attention in large part because it has never before been offered for sale and the price tag, no less, is a walloping $78.8 million. But these are not the only factors that are turning the heads of affluent investors and prominent real estate professionals. The recent Los Angeles Times article on the property appropriately bears the headline “$78.8-Million Estate Comes with Trout Pond and Waterfall.”

Indeed, the controlled-temperature trout pond with two-story waterfall is a truly extraordinary amenity unrivaled by any other landscape luxury. It is likely that the future owner of the Bradbury Estate will find a distinct pleasure in having a personal trout-filled pond with its own pumping and cooling system to maintain a constant temperature of 57 degrees.

But while some might be more intrigued by the trout pond than others, any prudent investor can appreciate the exquisite architecture of this crown jewel estate, much of which took nearly 9 years of construction by high-level craftsmen to culminate.
