Edvard Munch’s ‘The Scream’ just sold for $119 million, and Paul Allen isn’t the buyer

Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen owns sports activities groups, large yachts and even his personal island, although that San Juan island property is at the moment for sale for $13.5 million.

So, did the globe-trotting billionaire just complement his many pursuits by selecting up considered one of 4 copies of Edvard Munch’s traditional portray The Scream? Allen was considered one of the names floated by The New York Instances as a attainable buyer of the paintings, which sold at Sotheby’s New York this week for a cool $119.9 million.

We actually had been curious whether or not The Scream could be coming to Seattle, so we requested Allen’s spokesman whether or not the billionaire was the nameless profitable bidder.

Seems, he was not.

Oh properly, I assume Allen can return to engaged on his area enterprise, taking part in his Jimi Hendrix guitars, studying his Shakespeare folio or accumulating classic plane. Right here’s Lesley Stahl of “60 Minutes taking a tour of Allen’s of Mercer Island house.
