Look, I'm not a Miro fan, but the man was part of history and his work deserves a bit of credit. (Having said that, yes it looks like a kindergartener could have drawn it)

I doubt it was an individual who bought it, more likely a corporation or pension fund who will stick it in a bank vault.

Economic Darwinism at work. Whoever bought that obviously didn't earn the money. Perhaps now someone can put that worthless parasite's inheritance to good use.

Postmodern theorem of art: lack of talent+(pretension*greed)=Art!

My question is how did the person who bought this manage to hang on to 37 million dollars long enough for this to go on sale?

I discovered recently that I am good at abstract art. it's simple, draw a random line or 2, go outside smoke a fat blunt, come back go with the flow of the lines and you will amaze

Prices are based on how much people think something is worth, not it's actual worth.

Of course it is worth it. That's why someone spent the money on it. It is sort of how markets work.

If I paint or draw something similar, can I get 37 million dollars too?

Not my taste- not a fan of a lot of abstract. There are a few paintings I will spend that kind of money on if I had it- just not this one.

Oh ya but gold is corrosion proof so it makes a beter contact. The point is it has uses this painting not really.

I think I scrubbed that same painting off the wall when I moved into my new place.

Joan Miro, it's actually a rather famous painting in the art world.

Actually copper is a better electrical conductor than gold. (Silver being best)

I dunno...I'm not going to tell somebody how to spend their money but if it were me investing in art I think I'd find something that looks a little bit less like a four year old kid cut out some construction paper and stuck it on a blue sheet of paper and then scribbled with a black Crayola. (Whew that's a long sentence.)

I see what you mean but at least gold makes an amazing electrical conductor


So does copper, and there's tonnes of that around.

Modern art is such a scam.
I could have painted that with my feet.

I could drink paint, squat over a canvas and come up with a better painting than this.

I seriously doubt this was bought because the buyer liked it. It's a gamble that it will increase in value.
MacGuffin, diamonds are probably the most egregious example of a wildly over-priced commodity. Even their rarity is an illusion.
