Our list of the most expensive paintings of the world includes only those sold at art auctions and privately. The popular paintings exhibited in well-known museums are not included in this list, since their price correlates with their insurance. Therefore, there is not a single picture of Leonardo da Vinci in this list. However, if at least one of the paintings by Leonardo were put up for sale, it would cost much more than any of the paintings listed here.
