Michael Crichton estate: $29 million for Jasper Johns' Flag

Michael Crichton estate: $29 million for Jasper Johns' Flag

If you doubt the value of a good story, look no further than the art auction held last night New York, where works in the collection of the late Michael Crichton were sold off. One work, Jasper Johns' iconic "Flag", sold for $28.6 million, according to the New York Times.

Crichton, who died in 2008, made his fortune with thrillers such as "Jurassic Park," "The Terminal Man," and "The Lost World." So moms and dads, tell your kids to start scribbling!

And just imagine what JK Rowling and Stephenie Meyer can afford to buy. Maybe the Mona Lisa would look good hanging over the fireplace?
