The only woman to ever make the list of the top 15 richest living artists at #11, Cindy Sherman and her photography have become iconic examples of American art.
Her estimated net worth: $35 million (US)
It doesn’t quite match the $300-500 million that Jeff Koons is worth or the whopping $1 billion that Damien Hirst is reportedly banking, but it’s impressive all the same.
Love it or hate it, photographer Cindy Sherman’s whimsical works are the second, Untitled #96 (1981), $3,890,500; and fifth, Untitled #153(1985), $2.7 million, most expensive photographs in the world. [Complex]
