Roma Moulding congratulates legendary fine art photographer Peter Lik, on setting a world record for the most expensive photograph ever sold.
Lik sold his masterpiece “Phantom” to a private collector for $6.5 million, eclipsing the previous record of $4.3 million set in 2011.
Announced on December 9, 2014 through www.lik.com, that a private buyer had purchased “Phantom” for $6.5 million, along with Lik’s “Illusion” for $2.4 million and “Eternal Moods” for $1.1 million.
“Congratulations to long-time Roma Moulding partner and family friend, Peter Lik,” said Tony Gareri, CEO of Roma Moulding. “Talent and passion seeps from Peter’s pores and I always knew he would make history. We are honored and feel privileged to work alongside a self taught, self-driven visionary. Being able to complete Peter’s masterpieces with a Roma Moulding frame is a dream come true.”
Lik has found inspiration in and captured some of nature’s most iconic images over the past 30 years. The native of Australia further solidifies his standing as a leader in the world of fine art and now has four photographers listed in the most expensive photographs ever sold. Lik previously sold his famed image “One” for $1 million in 2010.
“I have been using Roma Moulding for years,” Lik said. “I love the look and feel of their handcrafted finish. They were the only choice for me when it came to framing Phantom.”
Lik worked with Gareri to create the perfect frame combination for “Phantom.” The pair decided on a Roma Elite frame (#99908045) for the outside, a silver leaf Ramino frame (#4921044) for the inside and a satin black Ramino frame (#133001) for the middle.
