#20 – “White Center (Yellow, Pink and Lavender on Rose)” – Mark Rothko – $74.9 million
Isn’t this painting so cool and so deep? We see the meaning of life in this painting which just represents yellow, white, and purple square. Look at this painting and you’ll find the meaning of life.
The text above was ironic, but it is some kind of a protest against the abstract paintings, which are, to some useless and they don’t represent any meaning, and it is also a protest against the high price of these paintings. We mean, even a child can paint a painting like that. We’ll find a couple of children paint some square using special painting techniques and equipment and see if we can sell the painting for $74.9 million, as this painting was sold for that price.
This painting was completed in 1950 and its author is a man named Mark Rothko. The painting was sold to the Royal Family of Qatar for $74.9 million.
