    At the 'top' end, people don't buy art for what it looks like but rather who created it.

    These kinds of paintings were painted by very famous painters. And there are only so many works available by very famous painters. So it is simple supply and demand. These days, art by famous artists is an investment commodity like stocks. People buy it because the prices seem to go up more than they go down. It may also be that the person who purchased the art also liked the aesthetics of the artwork, but that is probably a secondary reason for their purchase.
    And the specific price for an individual work of art is determined by what the previous price for the artist's work has been, coupled with any recent shows and how those shows have been received by critics and art historians. Prices can also be affected by recent art historical opinions or books about the artists. (Quora)
