ridiculously expensive modern art

We’re having a go at being cultured today. Lovers of modern arts are a special breed of people. They are able to see things other people can’t.

For instance, the colour blue is just blue to many of us. But to modern art lovers, it is a blue that evokes the artist’s emotions of longing and sadness, you get my drift.

We have a hard time wrapping our heads around the fact that some of these ridiculous modern arts were sold for millions of dollars, the most recent being of a blue painting with a white line in the middle – that went for $43.8 million dollars!

Don’t just take my word for it! The following are 15 examples of paintings that would be considered junk if they were sold at an ordinary garage sale, but because of their extravagant history, descriptions and estimated value, were sold for millions to the highest bidder:
