DiCaprio, who only recently joined the Social Media app, spotted the piece on his newsfeed before calling the gallery to purchase it.

Nachlass, 2015, by New York artist Jean-Pierre Roy was on show at Copenhagen's Gallery Poulsen.

Roy said of his works that they are "often associated with science fiction and the post-apocalyptic."

"Previous work often focused on sublime optical phenomena and massive cataclysmic events as they present situations where the viewer is placed into a moment, where the natural world has reorganized itself into a beautiful, terrifying, and unfamiliar system of forces."

This piece will make a welcome addition to DiCaprio's expanding collection which includes Salvador Dali and Frank Stellar
