I know several people who painted their own "abstracts" for decorations without any previous experience. They definitely look better than 'Home Goods' stuff and I would probably not be able to tell a difference if I see some famous work and my friend's work next to each other in the museum.

If I remember correctly Edward Weston's 'Excusado' was the world's most expensive photograph at one time.

The image was a photograph of his toilet.

A list of the world's most expensive photographs can be found here.

It makes for some interesting reading.

Great link, thanks.

Must be another shocker: all I get is a little box with a cross in it.

Ah! I get it now - it's a health warning.

As a F1 fan, I very much like this:
http://blog.iso50.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/Gursky_Andreas_Bahrain_II_25_06_100076c3a.jpg

also by Gursky.


Thanks for the link. That's the first Gursky I've seen that doesn't make me say "Ho, hum!" That one has real pizzazz. I'd spend much more money for it than I would for the one that precipitated this thread.
