1998: The Vincent van Gogh painting "Self-portrait Without Beard" sells at auction for $71.5 million. At the time, it was the third (or an inflation-adjusted fourth) most expensive painting ever sold. The 1889 painting was Van Gogh's last self-portrait, which he gave to his mother as a birthday gift.
