I going to have to agree with a post over at Animal:

While the NYPD was roughing up art-handlers and pro-union protestors outside, Christie’s sold the world’s most expensive photograph. Ta da: Rhein II (1999) by Andreas Gursky, one of an edition of six, $4,338,500. Not his best work. A boring, pricey autograph, if you will.

Wow. It’s amazing what an autograph can do.
