Doing a little copyright editing at the home-slash-office, the subject being Jackson Pollock. Came across this little tidbit: The image you see at right is of Pollock's painting, entitled "No. 5, 1948." It sold in November 2006 for more money than has any painting prior to which in history: $140M. Uhm, that'd be a hundred and forty million dollars, people.
I realize this cannot constitute "news" a year & a quarter later, but I only just found out about it.
Trivia question: Which side is up?
Bet you thought the question would be, "What is Art?"
