In March 2015, three paintings by Matt Jaeborn were auctioned at Christies in London. These paintings are surprising: they are paint by number made when the artist was a child. The tryptic takes off for $14 million. 14 million for three paint by number tableaux! Who is behind this crazy purchase? The major collectors? The Russian mafia? The painter himself? A fascinating investigation that uncompromisingly addresses the excesses of contemporary art.
