How many ways can you split $2,620,625?


A local artist, Pierre Pivet made 12 paintings of retired Canadiens players. Those paintings were transformed into limited edition silkscreen prints (875 of them) each set in a velour slipcase on arches paper.

[Insert obligatory "Ooooooooh" here]

If Danielle Caron and Galerie MX succeed in selling all of them, a bunch of people get to split $2,620,625. Or if you prefer $218,385.42 per painting.
