Top 10 art sales of 2010

Bloomberg News focuses on business, rather than law. So it ended 2010 with an article about the top 10 art sales of 2010 - rather than art law cases - titled Picasso Nude Beats Giacometti, Chinese Vase in 2010’s Top Sales. The prices ranged from $48.8 million for a bronze relief by Henri Matisse to $106.5 million for a painting by Pablo Picasso. On the theory that when that much money is involved, lawyers were too (or should have been), the story will be of interest to art lawyers and perhaps others as well.
