Are the most expensive paintings ever worth their prices? A definitive ranking

No 5, 1948 by Jackson Pollack. An early Pollock drip painting from the very years when he was perfecting his unprecedented visceral method of creating abstract art by pouring and flicking paint onto a canvas laid out on the ground? Yes, please. Money no object. This is not one of the most satisfying, supreme Pollock masterpieces, those strangely poised miracles of improvisation, but it is fascinating, haunting and achingly human.
