Somebody is getting rich on his talent.

I love this, the same way I loved when Andy Warhol's stuff started selling in the high millions. That a lot of people hate both things just adds to the attraction.

And it'll be used to launder money for years to come.

His line of clothing for the Emperor is coming along fine as well.

Those are shopping carts not strollers.

Love the shoutout to John Constable (I'm guessing he's fairly obscure to non-Brits) invoking the serene and tranquil scenery of yore. Dad and I used to fish at some ponds around Dedham Mill (the location of a few of Constables works) when I was a wee lad, and it was not far off from the paintings.  I shudder to think what it may look like now (hopefully it's been protected).

If it didn't get destroyed immediately after, it's habitually worthless.

Which art teacher, subby? My grade school art teacher was one of my favorite people I've ever met, and a cool, unique artist. My college art teacher was cringe-worthy in so many ways.

When will it stop being newsworthy that the ultra rich are buying paintings because they don't trust the stability of nations in this gilded age?

There is a Banksy on Sesame Street. Muppets are hip like that.

The buyer could have made a much bigger ecological "statement" by giving the $10M to some green charity instead.

As a former art teacher: it would have been lazier composition to have just one "stroller" there but I have some critiques for how closely the tangents of the plants on the right line up with the bottom of the bridge.

How does an anonymous artist get paid?

Love it.

Trik: Those are shopping carts not strollers.

Also, by having more than one there, it shows it as a deliberate act and that more than one person, society in general, is involved.  I mean, I'm no longhair art perfessor, but even I can see that much.

Money with no printing on it. Sucks because you have to remember all the denominations of all the bills in your wallet.

Through his/her agent?

An interesting painting by a famous artist sold for a lot of money.
More obvious than ironic, don't you think?

I would have only bought it if it was on black felt.

Are those Aldi shopping carts?
