    What size is this picture and what would be the price on it?

    • Pat Miran says:

      The size of “The Horse Fair” is approximately 96″ by 200″. According to Wikipedia, Cornelius Vanderbilt II purchased the painting at auction for $53,000 in March of 1887. Accounting for inflation, that would be approximately $1,435,924 in today’s dollars. He immediately donated the painting to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York city. The painting has been on exhibit at the Met ever since, and to my knowledge, not for sale.
