Portrait of Alfonso d’Avalos, Marquis of Vasto, in Armor with a Page
– SOLD FOR $70.0 MILLION (equivalent to $89.7 million in 2015) in November 2003.
– This is history on canvas. And the subject is pretty darn impressive as well not only does he look amazing in his suit of armor, he actually captured the French King Francis I and handed him to Charles V.
– Claim he is a relative if you must, but whatever you do, get a painting of the Seventy Million Dollar Soldier!
