The paining is called Peinture (Etoile Bleue)… from the Spanish Artist Joan Miro…..
The pink splash bit really is my favorite part… 😉

My niece drew me this same pic last week for a stick of gum
My 3yr old son totally just drew something like that on my white board! IM RICH!!!
What a bargain. Damn me for not bringing my checkbook.
some people have more money than brains. My 11 year old could do a better painting than that.
i think i drew something like that when i was 3
I shall set my children to work immediately! They can easily produce stuff like this!
A fool and his money are soon parted.
who the hell you kidding? this is something that a 4 year old could have slopped together in class.
I guess I just don't get it.
What's the story behind this? that might be what actually sold
The kinds of things people call art:
I guess it would take just under 4 min. to create this. So that's $10m a min. give or take. Not a bad day at the office.
I'm pretty sure that's the same sploch thats on my old rug I threw out…
My cat can do better. AND scratch dirt over it.
Yet another reason I just don't get the art scene… especially abstract stuff.
Subjectively thinking something is awesome is all well and good, but spending $37 million on a piece of art, no matter how awesome you think it is, seems like a waste of $36.9 Million…. give or take. 😛
I doodle that kind of crap all the time. But because I don't have the right last name, I'm still poor.
What is it? Fishing?
You just don't get it huh? It's a map to a $38 mil treasure!
That pink thing is actually a lady in a dress–it's Cinderella, and in this modern age she's running up the stairs to snag a ride from that blue jet flying overhead. She left a big red shoe behind.
I hope the individual who purchased it has buyer's remorse.
To bring a positive note: I love it!
What is that? $37M?! Oh my, I just cant help but laugh! hahaha
I'm not jealous of the artist I just feel really sorry for whoever paid $37m
Just more proof rich people have too much money. At some point the artist is probably going to admit his 2 yr old did this.
Your thoughts on this painting +P E Sharpe?
Personally, it's confusing. As the title implies, you want to look at the blue star on the top left. Even the linework is trying to lead your eyes there. The thing is, the oversaturated red spot, keeps pulling my eyes towards it, restarting the process of going back to the blue star.
who d hell is a fool here? Dont hav tym for rubbish like this
I see a judge, a robot and a piece of fruit being squashed by said robot…
Post is NOT true! The price was $36.9 million! Makes all the difference in the world! :p
Wow, I guess I am an artist, my parents were wrong.
37 million dollars?????????????????????????????????????????????????
i think i should spend my time at day care and see all the arts the kidz making and take a picture … i wonder how much it will be sold if this on is $37.. i can only say Rich pps are really getting ridicules on everything.
Despite having some recognition during his career, like most artists he wasn't a wealthy person. I suppose his art is valuable because it was influential? en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joan_Mir%C3%B3

someones having a proper lmao….
Look Ma!.. I drew this for you at school today… My kindergarten teacher told me you would stick it to the refrigerator 😉 LOL…
The crap people will waste money on WOW!!!
That money could have feed, clothed and supported a whole family the rest of their lives!!!
it makes me feel squiggly…on the ocean….atop a deformed fish…with a miniature pink dress within my recesses…. 😛
+Shawn Startup Ditto
That is infuriating.
Guys this probably took a whole lifetime to create based on who the person is, their story and why they made it. It could be comparable to the blood on the wall in a cell of an insane asylum that held Einstein at one point.
I have junk under my bed that looks like this
so sad but so true
did you mean miriam any one give you 37 million dollars for that junk hahahahaha
thumps up Miriam Dunn LMAO hehe same here girl
Sheesh, listen to all of the art critics. "I could have done it, I could have done it." I think that's the rallying cry whenever there is a discussion about modern art. The problem is you didn't do it. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joan_Mir%C3%B3 What would you prefer? Only photo-realistic Robert Bateman paintings sold for money? We have cameras for that.
I am in the wrong business then. For sale many, many works of art just like this or better done by my kids. (they are actually better).
I think he stole my vision from a 3rd grade painting I did…grrrr
TJ best if u let ur kids participate on it hehe they'd do better than this one i promise ya hehe
Ah, makes complete sense.
