There is a $999,999 price for an eBay auction where an individual claims that after matching up the prices of sold artwork to tax records, they know Bansky‘s real name. And they’ll mail a piece of paper to you with that name on it. Somebody either at the galleries or the artist is real smart.
The Cleveland Museum of Art plans to auction more than two dozen European old master paintings. The museum’s chief curator says the 32 works don’t fit well with the Cleveland museum but could have a place elsewhere. Most of the works are by minor masters and are expected to bring in much smaller amounts.
