Painter Buys Pollock (Or Not)

A painter and long time admirer of Jackson Pollock buys a painting that may be a Pollock (but then again may not be). The price was $61,000. “The 15-minute auction opened at $25,000 Wednesday evening but dropped to $10,000 when no one bid and then to $5,000 before the bidding heated up. ‘I’ve been looking at them for 40 years. My gut tells me this is real’.”
