WOW! Just a SMALL mistake, haha, but art is one of those things that you just NEVER know. I remember a few years ago when Johns sold one of his lesser-known flags from his personal collection (kind of a blagh white one) for $20mil. Another was sold recently (IIRC) for something close to $80mil.

I noticed that... I think I saw a naked man above and beside your Murakami! Sacre bleu! If I were going to have a nude on my wall... I think I'd want something less provocative/attractive than downright arresting/mildly disturbing... something like Lucian Freud or Francis Bacon...

Me too! Although, a really creepy Goya wouldn't be bad, either. And, for Rothko, one of the later ones... very dark... very big...
