  8. 8. Pollock painting reportedly fetches highest price New York -- A work by the late U.S. abstract expressionist Jackson Pollock has been sold for about $140-million (U.S.), which if confirmed would make it the highest sum paid for a painting, a report said yesterday. The painting in Pollock's trademark drip style, titled No. 5, 1948 , belonged to Hollywood magnate David Geffen and went in a private sale for "about 140 million dollars," The New York Times quoted unnamed art experts as saying. The experts, who spoke on condition of anonymity, identified the buyer as David Martinez, a Mexican financier. AFP 1
  9. 9. But what about the Mona Lisa?
  10. 10. But what about the Mona Lisa? Mona Lisa (La Gioconda) by Leonardo da Vinci is owned by the French government and hangs in the Musée du Louvre in Paris so it would not be offered in auction. But it has the highest insurance value for a painting in history, $100 million on December 14, 1962, before the painting toured the U.S. for several months. Taking inflation into the account it would be approximately $670 million in 2006! http://www.renoir.org.yu/most-expensive-paintings.asp
