Clapton Places Painting For Auction

ArtEric Clapton, the legendary rock legend star, placed an abstract painting for auction and might be able to sell it for $19 million. The painting that he placed for auction is called "Abstraktes Bild (809-4)." While Clapton hopes to sell the painting for about $19 million, he could receive as little as $14 million. Regardless of what they sell the painting for, Clapton stands to make a profit because he purchased the painting for $3.4 million in 2001.

It is amazing that someone could sell a painting for that much. I'm actually wanting to attend a new england auctions to see what I can find. Hopefully I won't have to spend that much.
