Christie's Sells Hockney Painting for $90 Million

Folks, I am here to tell you that there is a lot of money in the world right now . . . literally.

And someone just spent $90 million of that money on a Hockney painting --

The hammer price was $80 million; with the buyer's premium, the final price to $90,312,500. That's a record for a painting by a living artist.

Let's give them the benefit of the doubt, and assume that they had not touched up or otherwise tampered with the painting.
