If "modern art is a scam", my skin color is purple and my eyes are bright orange. The famous "No. 5 1948" painting by abstract painter, Jackson Pollack, is the most expensive painting in the world! The work was sold by David Geffen, founder of Geffen Records, and co-founder of Dreamworks SKG in 2006, to David Martinez, managing partner of Fintech Advisory, Ltd. The price in private sale was for a record $140,000,000.00!! This is one 4' x 8' Most Excellent "drip" style painting that I would have absolutely no problem scamming in my home.
