Good job the owners didn't burn them to keep warm eh :wink::D

 

Have to agree with you in a way but there is also something rather appealing about his paintings and the simplicity of his little 'Matchstalk Men and Matchstalk Cats and Dogs' and scenery.

 

Not worth ?5 million though but then again I've never understood why Vangogh's 'sunflower' was worth ?24 million (or somewhere around that anyway)

 

The highest recorded sale price that I could find was for a picture called No. 5, 1948 by Jackson Pollock.

 

It was done on an 8' x 4' sheet of fiberboard, with thick amounts of brown and yellow paint drizzled on top of it, forming a nest-like appearance..... absolute **** and not even worth a fiver in my opinion :oops::lol:

 

And the second highest price is painting called 'Woman III' by Willem de Kooning which apparently sold in 1996 for $137.5 million.

I just looked at that too and it's nothing more than a blob of paint daubed across a canvass in the shape of a woman.... a bit like a 5 year old would do :roll::lol:

 

Madness... and I might get my paints out tomorrow :wink:
