WTF? ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME! SOME RICH IDIOT PAID 75.1 MILLION FOR THIS??? Wow, give me 4 rollers, 4 colors of paint and a 7 year old and we got this one covered. Think about how many good things someone could do with that much money. Oh wait, buying this was such a great investment. The anonymous bidder is one of the biggest a$$wholes of all time. What a total tool! Maybe try a donation?
Mark Rothko led the night with a whopping $75.1 million sale (including fees). The painting, No. 1 (Royal Red and Blue), went to an anonymous bidder for the second-highest amount of any Rothko in history, far more than the pre-sale estimate of between $35 and $50 million.
