art prices break records


Is there still a crisis going on? Art record prices keep on breaking. Early this month Norwegian expressionist Edvard Munch’s “The Scream” became the most expensive artwork sold at auction, after it fetched $ 119.9 million. This week not only pop-art-artist Roy Lichtenstein’s “Sleeping girl” was sold for $ 45 million, “Orange, red, yellow” by Mark Rothko, broke the previous record for a work of his hand and is now the most expensive work of contemporary art with a pricetag of $ 86,9 million.
