An IPO for a Painting? This $55 Million Masterpiece Is Going Public – WSJ

Shares in the portrait will be sold for around $100 a piece and will list on a specially created art stock exchange based in Liechtenstein, giving regular investors the ability to buy and sell shares in a famous artwork on a stock exchange for the first time.
