This painting of Picasso's was painted in 1905 when Picasso was only 24 years old. This picture was created during Picasso's "Rose Period". The reason that I chose this picture was because I was shocked when I read that this picture was sold for $104 million dollars in 2004 in New York City. I thought that the amount of money that it was sold for was crazy! Don't get me wrong, I think that this painting is very good, but I think that there are other paintings out there that are better. I was also shocked to find out that it was only the #2 most expensive painting ever sold. The most expensive painting ever sold was in 2006 for $135 and is called Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer by Gustav Klimt.
