From CNN Europe this morning:

"LONDON, England -- A previously "lost" painting by the Flemish master Peter Paul Rubens has sold for $76 million at auction -- nearly 10 times its expected price.

"The Massacre of the Innocents," painted between 1609 and 1611, was bought at Sotheby's in London by an anonymous bidder for £49,506,650 ($76,730,700) after the price rocketed during a frantic bidding war.

It was the third highest price paid for a painting. The most expenive is Vincent Van Gogh's "Portrait of Doctor Gachet" which sold for $82 million in New York in 1991. "

Seems like a hell of a lot to pay for some extra sound absorption if you ask me...
