When One Has Too Much Money
A painting by Jackson Pollock has sold at auction in New York for$11.65m (?6.62m), setting a record price for a work by the post-war US artist.Add this (okay, to be honest, it was already on the list) to the list of things I will never comprehend. I admit I find his painting as creative as his title though.
Entitled Number 12, 1949, the Pollock painting was sold by the Museum of Modern Art to an anonymous buyer.[Nitpicker emphasis]
