Photography: Steichen

A rare photograph just sold for $2.9m. It's "The Pond-Moonlight" (1904) by Edward Steichen. I'd pay $1.85m for it.

The previous record was a cowboy photo by Richard Prince that isn't even a proper photo. He photographed a Marlboro ad. And there are multiple copies. He got $1.248m. I'd pay $12.48.

Edward Weston's "The Breast" (1921) fetched $822,400. Worth $105,000.

You can get a photo of Kristen Bell and a puppy for $4.50 on eBay. I'd pay $2.9m for that!
