The actor further added that if he had constantly made such huge sales from his paintings, he would have happily given up being an actor. Brosnan sold the iconic painting in 2018 during an auction at amfAR's 25th annual Cinema Against AIDS event in Cannes.

The artwork was bought by a Ukrainian billionaire called Marina Acton. Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter about his big sale at the time, Brosnan said he was thrilled, adding that he and his wife Keely Shaye Smith had a great night at the auction.

With his remarkable skill as an actor and impressive talent as a painter, Brosnan is indeed a legend. Not many people can balance acting with painting, but this icon has proved that nothing is impossible.
