NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — In the world of art, reports have recently revealed that the Arabian state of #Qatar secretly purchased a Paul Cézanne painting, The Card Players, for more than #$250million. “The deal, in a single stroke, sets the highest price ever paid for a work of art and upends the modern art market,” said Vanity Fair. This sale more than doubles the previous record paid for a work of art. A French artist, Cezanne (1839-1906), was a Post-Impressionist painter.
