Jackson Pollock, No 5, 1948

Jackson Pollock's work might be high on innovation and style and low on conventional representational merit, but that has not stopped one of his works, "No 5, 1948" becoming the world's most expensive painting yesterday, when it was sold for £73 million by the Hollywood mogul David Geffen, in a deal brokered by Sotheby's. It beats the record previously established by Gustav Klimt's picture "Adele Bloch-Bauer I" last June, which sold for a comparatively trifling £70 million.
