AI Painting Finally Auctioned for Stunning $432,500 by Christie’s


The much-hyped piece of art created by an AI artist has been auctioned off by Christie’s for an astounding $432,500. The artwork, named the Portrait of Edmond Belamy, is the first such painting to be auctioned off by the venerable 252-year-old institution. And more astonishing than the final bid price is that the painting was expected to be sold for between $7,000 and $10,000.

Designed by an art-tech collective named Obvious made up of three French students, the ‘Portrait’ was created by a machine learning algorithm, which trained itself on historical portraits.
