No. 5, 1948 is a painting made by American abstract artist Jackson Pollock. Despite the name, it was painted in 1950 using oil on canvas. Like most of Pollock's paintings, it is a random assembly of paint dribbles and dots, creating a nest-like effect. Through its timeline, it has been in the hands of numerous owners, with it currently being owned by David Martinez. It was sold to said person for 140 million dollars, which makes it the second most expensive painting sold at auction in the world.
