    This PDF resource includes an article about a painting that sold for £20m, as well as accompanying activity ideas perfect for learning at home or in school:

    • Hold a debate on the public's right to see famous artworks. What happens when private owners pay for such pieces, rather than galleries getting them?
    • Imagine something that you've drawn or painted sells for auction like this painting did. Write a short, humorous tale about it
    • Write an account of a time you've been to a museum. What did you find interesting? Why?
    • See if you can find out the top five most expensive paintings of all time. Who painted them? What are they called? What do they depict? And how much did they sell for?
