http://www.owensoundsuntimes.com/2012/10/13/eric-claptons-painting-breaks-record-with-342-million-sale

So this painting sold at auction for 34.2 million. Gerhard Richter is the artist who created the painting, hes been doing abstract visual art since the 1950s. He is now holds the record for most expensive art piece sold by a living artist. Its kind of sad i think however that he does not get that 34 million but eric clapton does, and its not even because of value appropriation in my opinion. The piece is only 11 years old so it couldnt have increased in value by ten times in 11 years. I think the reason it sold for so much is because a celebrity owned a famous painting. The buyer is anonymous, they are probably some star-fucker, but either way its pretty incredible.

For more background on the artist,

That's ridiculous.... Although, the picture is pretty damn sweet.
