No. 3 Jackson Pollock – “Number 5, 1948”, (1948)
Sold at a private sale by David Geffen to an unknown buyer, rumored to be a Mexican Businessman called David Martinez, the work was worth $140 million. With a dripping technic Pollock’s work is considered to be one of the most expensive among contemporary art. Its price demonstrates that not only classical paintings can reach this kind of sums, and showes the strength of the Art Market.
