Most beautiful modern painting
The most valuable painting in the world is Jackson Pollock's No 5, 1948. But its frenetic splash marks don't always rate highly with the general public. However, the third most expensive painting ever to be sold is one consistently adored by art aficionados and the public alike. Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I by Gustav Klimt was completed in 1907 and sold for $135m (currently £86m) in 2006. It's now on display in the Neue Galerie, New York.
