So they have the world's most expensive print? I don't think so.

I have a nineteen fifties picture of my grandad's front door. Its black and white and a bit blurred, but I am willing to part with it for five million dollars.

So, they'll gonna feel a bit sick when it sells - eh?*

*If it does sell, I've still got the neg, so I'll print some more :-)

With these sorts of prices, it always surprises me that they can't spell art properly. The silent ph at the start is missed.

More illuminating.

"David Ross, former director of the Whitney and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art"

We're living in a world of funny money," says Ross. "And money is not really a measure of anything anymore because ... it's thrown around in such unpredictable ways." Ross, a friend of Sherman's, remembers when she was selling photos for $500 a pop."


I have any number of photos that I'd happily sell as a print at $500 pop.

Unfortunately I am not an an artist.
