Cindy Sherman - Most Expensive Female Photographer

Top Lists

October 31, 2016

Well over a century after the art academies in the western world opened their doors to women, it is strange and somewhat disheartening to find only one female name on this list. American photographer and film director with a net worth of $35 million, Cindy Sherman is an exceptional artist who has achieved fame through both her groundbreaking conceptual portraits as well as lucrative commercial collaborations with high fashion brands, makeup companies, and magazines. The 3rd and 7th most expensive photographs ever sold in the world are Sherman’s work with a print of Untitled #96 selling for almost $4 million at auction in 2011 and that of Untitled #154 for $2.7 million.
