Thirty years ago a watershed in the art market was reached. On March 30, 1987, Vincent van Gogh’s Still Life: Vase With 15 Sunflowers sold at Christie’s in London for $39.9m (including premium).

It tripled the auction record for any art work and, in doing so, hit the headlines worldwide. The purchase highlighted the new breed of wealthy buyers in the art market and showed that museums could no longer compete with private buyers for major works.
