I like that 1904.. but then Im pretty traditional guy.

If Im correct Gursky shoots with large format. Those two large pics from him have quite interesting "look".

Thanks for the comparison, mshl. Very interesting.

In all seriousness, I must say that I am, what's the word, astounded, gobsmacked, surprised... that images that seem so simple could be worth that much money to anyone. I'm sure that they look much more impressive as prints than little thumbnails on my computer screen. Certainly that 1st Gurky at 7 feet by 12 feet on the wall would. I've seen the Mona Lisa in person and it is indeed quite moving. Much more so than you would expect after being so familiar with the image from other sources. Still, I'm at a loss to comprehend the magnitude of value that has been placed on these pieces. I suppose that's the crux of art, isn't it. If these artists can provide an emotion that someone can value this highly, well, good for them.

Take Gursky's name off it and replace it with Paddy O'Brien and see how much it sells for

interesting how the artists name attaches so much value.
IE: top 4 are by 2 people, because the other sold for so much, the others available must also, invariably be worth a similar amount.

So much of this is speculation and investment rather than actual art appreciation.

The only one I like is #4. The others (minus 5) are just garbage photos. I guess some people have millions of dollars to waste. Maybe I'll go into my local Dollar Store and take a photo.
