Daily chart: the world’s most expensive art. When Edvard Munch painted “The Scream” he did not have enough money to buy canvas, so the painting that sold on May 2nd at Sotheby’s for $120m is on cardboard. Yet the sale is only a record in nominal terms: adjusted for inflation, several more expensive paintings have been sold.
