The most expensive painting sold to date

The Francis Bacon painting sold for $142 million dollars. The purchaser the ex wife of a casino magnet. I have seen some great art, this aint it. Although I have seen it I would not include the Mona Lisa as something my artistic mystic would want to keep. Rembrandt, Klimt, Van Gough,  and Picasso would open my wallet, but I can not imagine a stages so strong it could support a purchase of even one. I know a guy who can paint the same so well that an art expert without x ray vision would say same. This is some obscene misdirection of capital that surely Marx frowned upon, but what say you, the viewer?

I say this is a exhibit of the worst kind. That is a great sum of money and it could be easily applied to great things. Sure half will go down the drain, but that is the way it works, no invention stands alone, even those that are the same.
