Most Expensive Photograph Ever Sold

The most expensive photograph ever sold? The number 1 spot is taken by Andreas Gursky’s Rhein II, which sold for $4.3 at auction in 2011, making it the most expensive photograph ever sold. It is the second and largest print of a set of six images of the Rhein – a river in Germany.

Gursky’s works are part of worldwide collections such as the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the Tate Modern, London; SFMOMA, San Francisco; the Centre Pompidou, Paris; and the Kunsthaus Zürich. Along with Victor Pinchuk, private collectors said to own Gursky in depth are Eli Broad in Los Angeles, Mitchell Rales in Washington, DC, and Bernard Arnault in Paris [15] and Gennadiy Korban in Geneva.
