Entertainment mogul David Geffen recently made art history. He sold a Jackson Pollock for $140 million, which now stands as the most expensive painting ever sold. That title previously belonged to Gustav Klimt’s Adele Bloch-Bauer I, which sold for $135 million. That’s right, the most expensive painting ever sold was done by that old boy from Wyoming who didn’t even use a paintbrush! Going back to my post from a few days ago, this illustrates another gigantic difference between Pollock and Twombly. Read more about the sale here.
