What is art according to you? Something unusual or something which you yourself cannot do? 

Well, to be a little more specific, I think art is different for the producers and viewers and the real artist is the one who can make his art understand and people are able to decode his language.

But I came across a painting which I myself failed to understand and was sold at a highly unexpected price, which was displayed at Sotheby's auction in New York. 

"Untitled (Yellow and Blue)" by Mark Rothko- $ 46.5 million.

It measures 2.42 meters by 1.86 meters (about eight feet by 6.1 feet) and was made in 1954.
