    At first I didn’t get this, but now I do: it’s about the million-some-odd price tag the original painting that this is based on got at auction. Considering that that was a famous painting (among Art fanatics/artists), the price was very fair.….IMHO.

    And there really are several originals! It’s a billion dollar painting.

    $120,000,000. 0bama throws that much away in a few seconds.

    You could create a lot of jobs with 120,000,000

    I don’t much like “The Scream”, but I have to defend Pollock. I remember very well the first time I saw the big Pollock at the Chicago Art Institute. It’s really quite overwhelming. It’s not just drips, it’s a world of its own. I just got lost in it. Of course liking and not liking is personal, and I’m not saying Pollock is to everyone’s taste.

    Better put, smart money doesn’t look to own property in a neighborhood built on myth.

    “Art” is in the eye of the beholder. The money to buy it, goes to those holding YOURS! Guess what, it ain’t the “government”. Although, the national museum has some neat stuff on “loan”.

    Just think, $120,000,000 could have put 2,400 people to work for a year. Yet it is wasted on a painting any child could do. Arrogance and selfishness abounds.

    Yeah, if each were paid $60,000 to $70,000 per year. Just think of all the tax money they would have paid. Missed out on that opportunity too.
