Simple Paintings You Can Make That’ll Earn You Fortune

Simple Paintings You Can Make That’ll Earn You Fortune


– [Narrator] Have you ever
seen a painting in a gallery and wondered just what
all the fuss was about? Sure, there’s such a thing
as minimalism, but valuations for so-called masterpieces
can be downright crazy. Whether you’re a pro painter or a novice, you’ll want to stick around
to hear about 10 paintings that sold for fortunes and are so simple, you could make them yourself. (bright electronic music) Number 10, Cy Twombly: Untitled (1968). It may look like a child’s
crayon drawing on a blackboard, but this is actually one of
the most popular paintings of artist Cy Twombly. What’s more, it sold at
auction in Sotheby’s in 2015 for a record-breaking $70.5 million! Yes, you heard that right, $70.5 million. To attempt to understand
this horrifically high price, let’s take a closer
look at the man himself. In his early career he was a cryptologist and this background has
been used by critics to defend the supposed
simplicity of his paintings, such as Untitled. According to Kirk Varnedoe,
the random doodling is actually “the orchestration of a
previously uncodified set “of personal ‘rules’ about
where to act and where not,” to the extent that Twombly “illuminates a complex
sense of human experience” which is unseen in previous art. Sotheby’s, it would seem, agree with him: Untitled is described
on their website as the “most mature from this
ground-breaking series “for its complexity and
its monumental scale,” a quote in which the word “complexity” stands out resoundingly. Still doesn’t fully account
for all those zeroes on the price tag in my opinion. Number nine, Mark Rothko:
Orange, Red, Yellow. In 2011, Mark Rothko’s
painting Orange, Red, Yellow set a new record for the highest price ever received for
contemporary art at auction. It sold for a staggering $86.9 million at Christie’s in New York. Where Orange, Red, Yellow is
concerned, you might well think that some price inflation
has occurred here too. However, according to art critics, it may be the simplicity
of the color palette chosen by Rothko that
has attracted buyers, since “collectors historically
pay more for works “that are red and gold,
as opposed to gray.” In fact, a New York Times article of 2012 called Orange, Red,
Yellow “the most powerful” of all of Rothko’s works. Whilst his portfolio isn’t that diverse, I’ll let you decide for yourselves. Since then, his other
pieces have attracted buyers with similarly deep
pockets, including Untitled which sold for $66 million in 2014 and No.6 (Violet, Green
and Red) for $186 million. And if you think the
last of those paintings sounds like an extortionate
sum, you’d be right: the dealer who sold the
artwork to its eventual buyer was investigated for
misleading his customer about its true price. Number eight, Barnett
Newman: White Fire I. Another painting to grace
the halls of Christie’s is White Fire by Barnett Newman, which sold for $3.8 million in 2002. It’s a part of a series of artworks which contain straight
lines of different colors, including his painting Black Fire, which sold for $86 million in 2014. Newman is credited as possibly
“the most influential artist “in abstract expressionism.” Looking at White Fire, there doesn’t seem to be much going on, but if you choose to
believe the art critics, there’s much more to this painting than meets the eye. Newman’s paintings are “existential”, “with the intention of
communicating a sense “of locality and presence.” The lines in his paintings
are known as “zips”, which simultaneously unite
and divide the composition. Newman himself is quoted as saying that “the painting should give
man a sense of place,” and in this way he hoped that the public would be able to relate
to him through his work. Whether that works with so
little content is debatable, but it’s interesting to note that Newman was mostly overlooked as an artist until the end of his life. Number seven, Lucio Fontana:
Concetto spaziale, Attesa. This painting by Lucio
Fontana sold for an impressive $1.7 million at an
auction in Munich in 2015. It forms part of the spaziale collection which, according to the auction website, are “the artist’s most sought after works “on the international market.” If you looked at this painting and just thought someone
had slashed a canvas with a razor blade, then you’d be right. But according to critics, the
bold application of slashes “explores the mysterious
depth of the seemingly “infinite space, making it meditative.” In Fontana’s own words, even,
his methods were not intended “as a means of destruction of the image” but instead as “a means to
explore what lies beyond it”. In fact, one exhibition space
in which Fontana’s works were recently featured
described his razor slashes as a “brief moment of creation,” which created “the cosmos in microcosm” and was “immortal” and “irrevocable”. This is very impressive when
you consider that most of us, artist or not, could easily buy a canvas and deface it with a blade. The real question is, would we be able to sell it for over $1 million? Number six, Ellsworth
Kelly: Green and White. It may not look like
much — yes, literally just a large uneven green
circle on a blank canvas — but this painting by Ellsworth Kelly sold for a cool $1.6 million
at Christie’s in 2008. And this is from an artist whose works, while revered, are known to generate rather subdued activity at auction houses. This was because Kelly
himself took a keen interest in the buyers of his art,
favoring loyal collectors who truly understood his work. In his own words, Kelly
“worked to free shape “from its ground and then to
work the shape so that it has “a definite relationship
to the space around it” which he believed symbolized freedom. He was influenced by simple objects which he observed in everyday life, but also by his work during the war in the special camouflage unit. This is used as a defense
to the supposed simplicity of his work, since he became adept at scrambling both visuals and ideas. So maybe there’s hidden genius
inside those simple shapes? I personally doubt it, and
side more with the argument that this work, like others in the video, is part of some money laundering scheme. Using art as a money laundering
vehicle is nothing new, and it would be easy to hide illicit gains by buying these pieces with dirty money and then cleaning it by getting a loan from the bank against
it or just selling off vast collections with auction houses. It’s almost impossible to substantiate, but I’m struggling to find
out why else you would pay millions for a poorly drawn green circle. Number five, Gerhard
Richter: Blood Red Mirror. Who knew that a plain block of color would generate so much interest and money? Certainly not me, or I would have tried selling one years ago! But perhaps it’s because
I’m not German artist Gerhard Richter, who sold
this piece of artwork for $1.1 million at Sotheby’s in 2009. This seems like a fantastical
sum for not much content, but is there something I’m missing? Well, for one thing the art is painted onto glass, rather than canvas, because Richter is a photo painter. Through the years,
Richter has experimented with different mediums with the intention of creating a non-art appearance, including paintings over photographs and using colored mirrors. Richter’s aim was to explore the interplay “between realism and abstraction”, as seen with the glass
in Blood Red Mirror. The mirror, while a tool for seeing things as they really are, is
intended to show that the truth is not always as certain or
objective as we may believe. Not convinced? Well, while the New York Times article at the time of the sale
says the piece sold for “a good price”, there is
at least some mention of it not being “an easy work to sell”. Number four, Barnett Newman: Onement VI. This is another entry from
artist Barnett Newman. His piece Onement VI
sold for $43.8 million at Sotheby’s in 2013, with
the painting being described in The New York Post as
“a field of blue paint “crossed by a ragged white line”. That ultra-creative explanation aside, Newman’s work does tend to generate huge sums of money from auction bidders. But there may be a good
explanation for that, according to Jonathan
Jones, who wrote in 2013 that “Newman is a great artist” and that work such as Onement
is “a bargain at any price”. And why does Jones think this? Well, that’s where things get
a little more complicated. The vertical white line
is a recurring motif in Newman’s work, and according to Jones, this symbolizes a “crack
in space and time”, which both “speaks of creation” and “draws you in at a psychic level”. Basically, it expresses the human yearning to find meaning in our world. Personally, I think I’m still trying to find meaning in the artwork. Number three, Kasimir Malevich:
Suprematist Composition. In 2008, this piece by Russian
artist Kasimir Malevich sold for $60 million at Sotheby’s, and this was during a recession! Apparently abstract art
is just as popular now as it was when Malevich
painted it in 1916, and people still have
more than enough money at their disposal to drop millions on a relatively unremarkable painting. That’s because in 2018,
the painting sold again for a staggering $85.8 million, making it the most expensive work in
the history of Russian art. Malevich was known as a pioneer
of geometric abstraction and this painting was intended to display a constellation of geometry
and color in space. In fact, it has been called
the “visual manifesto” of the entire Russian
avant-garde movement. According to critics, the painting shows “shapes stripped of their symbolism” and allows us to think in a broader sense about the composition,
since there “is no hierarchy “of importance between
the aesthetic elements”. In this way, Malevich was
creating new art for a new world. Or, this could have been
an expensive receipt for some type of shady transaction. I’ll let you decide. Number two, Jackson Pollock: No.5. Even if you’re not a professional, Jackson Pollock artwork is
easy to replicate, right? In fact, MoMA even has
an informational video which teaches you just that! Unfortunately for us
laypeople, without the name Jackson Pollock it is unlikely
to sell for $140 million, which is the price that
No.5 sold for in 2006. This shows just how much of a phenomenon Pollock and his abstract
expressionism has become, since initial responses to
the piece included onlookers questioning why anyone
would pay to own it. It was at this time that Pollock had begun to lay his
fiberboard on the floor and drip paint on it from above, a method which he believed
better allowed him to “incorporate himself into the painting” and to “express his feelings
rather than illustrate them”. So while it would be
accurate to look at No.5 as an artist’s cathartic passion project, it is precisely because
of the “strong emotion” behind Pollock’s work
that art critics claim neither a toddler nor a house painter could fully emulate him. However, it is widely agreed
that most people still view the painting as a mess akin
to a dense bird’s nest. Number one, Robert Ryman: Bridge. When a collection of Robert
Ryman’s work was exhibited at the Tate Gallery in 1993,
he protested that Bridge was not a blank canvas. In fact, he said it’s got a lot in it, since its painted in white. Buyers clearly agreed,
since the painting sold for a massive $20 million
at Christie’s in 2015. Interesting, then, that the
piece looks eerily similar to White Painting by Robert Rauschenberg; a three-panel painting
known as a triptych. There are actually a
lot of white paintings, from artists who formed part
of the Minimalist movement and were working to
counteract the expressionism of painters such as Pollock. Besides, according to
curator Elizabeth Sherman, “White isn’t a pure thing. “It is always tinted in some way.” So there’s actually a lot more depth to paintings such as
Bridge than meets the eye. And if you agree with MoMA
curator Leah Dickerman, they are “radical statements” in which the canvas “acts as a screen” which can absorb the
“ambient effects of a room”. This sounds great, but wouldn’t
it be even more radical to paint something besides plain white? Or, you know, not price it at $20 million? So, what did you think of the price tag for these works of art? Do you think their price is justified, or perhaps you may think it’s all part of some money laundering scheme. Let me know in the comments
section down below. And thanks for watching! (soft music)

    this is why people that call this modern art irritate me, what really happens there, I imagine it something like this. "So Bob, you said that you are the best abstract artist and that you masterpiece called "A Line" should be worth $100,000,000,000?" said the critique. Bob replies, "No, I said my five year old did this with a ruler." Critique responds "I know, it I marvelous isn't it." Bob, realizing this idiot is deaf, walks out of the room.

    The ‘scribble’ on the chalkboard thing contains occult messages and only ‘they’ know what’s written there. Also, these so-called ‘artists’ all belong to a secret society and they love to create wealth for their friends. We would not be paid $1.00 for a similar ‘work.’

  • Tara World says:

    RUBBISH like these are not even art! These are the kind of rubbish that caused the society to look down on true artistic talents, artist and arts in general! Till today there are tons of people going to another country and doing nonsense like these. Their audience? People who are too ashamed and egoistic to admit that they are not sophisticated enough to understand "such arts"! In short, being lazy, lack of talent, USING ARTS AND ABSTRACT TO HIDE THE LACK OF TECHNIQUES AND TALENTS then use bombastic words to bullshit your way through! Horrible rubbish like these are even taught in art schools nowadays and landing people in high paying positions in the name of art as a lecturer or artist or managing position! Even witnessed people with little to no talent just put up a show to portrayed themselves as being so sophisticated and researching real "hard" and seemingly showing themselves putting so much "effort" in their research (with tons of bombastic words, quotes, big bang theory) and then tell others how all these GREAT JOURNEY finally leads to the rubbish you are seeing now, and then claimed that its very sophisticated and full of meaning or depth within. And educated idiots who wants to show off to their bosses or to others can then use these garbage to dream up even more sophisticated writings to claim that they too see the big shit meaning within! HORRIBLE CRAP LIKE THESE MUST BE STOPPED AND BE WARNED AGAINST! Look at a prank video in which a guy placed a cheap painting bought from IKEA at an exhibition and let audiences guess it's worth… you can see what I meant.

  • just Bfree says:

    The art industry is completely ridiculous. It's all about making other people feel special mostly the buyer and the gallery not so much the artist. Like many things in life you have a lot of people trying to capitalize on the talents of other people while the people with the talents get the bread crumbs. The only way you get rich in the art world is if you play the game and placate to all the jackasses and be a willing sycophant to whom are trying to feel better about themselves simply by selling and purchasing work. There are artists out there that spend less than 3 hours on a painting some of them less than one hour not including prep and finishing and they sell that crap for $10,000 or $20,000 all because they went through the right galleries and these people saw a person whose image and personality they could exploit. It's only 20% about the quality of the work sometimes less than that. Don't be a normal Joe with no background. You can be the most skilled painter on Earth and still not make much because you're not feeding the ego of all the right people.

  • just Bfree says:

    The people who decide which art is worth six or seven figures are all a bunch of thieves that profit from it. They intentionally manipulate it and claim what is valuable rather than reality and don't you forget all of the money laundering they do through the art world. All these millionaires and billionaires "old world" money people who are up to no good use casinos the art world and countless other endeavors "collections" to launder their money and if they ever get caught it's okay because they own all the judges. Its a complete sham. Rothke is part of those old world jewish mafia folks that basically now run the Western governments and the UN. Pay attention to who buys these expensive paintings. Occasionally you might get an outsider but these are people moving money around for a reason. Same way with Hollywood. They invest in the Hollywood and use it to launder money and the government of course those nothing because they are completely corrupt and bought off. Same way they keep poisoning our food and yet the FDA does nothing about making our food safer I wonder why that is. It almost looks like they care more about not letting our food gets safer and that's because they get paid to look the other way. Unless you just think it's all a coincidence. Just like you think it's a coincidence people would pay 80 million dollars for a piece of shit painting. There are 12 year old that can paint better than these people but they bullshit you into thinking why they should be valuable because they are moving money around.

  • Roworld1 says:

    Ok. This video is a perfect example of what people who have money value. The value of something is not set by the person who is selling it, but by the buyer. This is how markets work and how supply and demand work. If enough people decide that something is great, worth having or is perceived to have great value then customers (in this case rich people who will spend their money on stuff the average person wouldn't even dream of) will want it and the value will go up. Great job for the Museum curators and auctioneers who probably sell the hell out of these paintings at auction and convince / get enough rich people drunk enough to open up their pockets and purses… lol. This truly is Capitalism at it's highest form, because you couldn't pay me to own any of these paintings and no I don't see the value. It must take the acquired taste and deep pockets of old money to see the value of these paintings…

  • Austen McKee says:

    I think a main reason why minimalism or abstract art became movements was because of exactly what you see from the content of the video and the commenters on it: When you leave nothing to imagination you are imitating the work of a cheap camera instead of actually expressing anything.

    The ability of an artist to make something that leaves room for interpretation from the viewers while also influencing a direction and leaving a path towards something the artist felt that inspired to work is way more valuable than painting a boat, ochean, sand, and realistic looking people.

    Paintings that just portray beautiful landscapes are seeking to invoke a vibe or emotions. Example: the painting of a rocky coast, lighthouse, stormy waters, and a dark, ominous sky might invoke a really thrilling and mysterious vibe because of the perceived danger and concealment of things beyond those chaotic blinding waters.

    Using a midnight blue paint to cover a canvas leaving variance in shade for texture and a group of grey shapes with a small white dot in the middle so that it seems distant could invoke some of those same feelings because our brains recognize colors and give them meanings, as well as shapes and patterns that coincide with how air brain naturally processes the things that we see.

    I don't know… some of the paintings in the video are harder to justify but paintings like Onement VI quickly bring on ideas and feelings from the artists choice in color and shapes, give it a chance.
