The Edsel and Eleanor Ford House had a secret sale of this Cezanne. And someone decided to do themselves the Christmas kindness of buying this beaut for ONE HUNDRED MILLION DOLLARS. But don’t worry, this didn’t go to anything worthwhile and grandiose like, uh, to support Detroit in any way — Ford House is private, and the money is being used to restore the house and grounds. Apparently, the separate endowment of $86 million isn’t enough to support everyday operations.
