Art has always been a passion of mine. So it was great fun to discover that BBC has a programme by Alastair Sooke on the world’s most expensive painting from Van Gogh to the most expensive artist ever auctioned, the controversial Picasso.
Watch the video and try to think about these questions:
a) What do you think of Lord Jeffrey Archer’s character?
b) What is the meaning or value of art now that it is such a coveted object for the wealthy?
c) Try to reflect on the different attitudes of art collectors.
d) What raises the price of art in the market?
