Gerhard Richter’s Eisberg (1982) sold for £17.7 million (20,4 million) at Sotheby’s in London on March 8 this year, setting the record for the most expensive landscape painting sold at auction.

I can’t show you Richter’s painting (see the link above), but here’s another nice iceberg from Wikimedia Commons.

  1. Mira Tudor, Thank you for the share. The link didn’t work. But I found the landscape through an internet search. The Richter painting makes me think of the Titanic because of the big iceberg and globally warmed climate change because of all the smaller ones.
