If you really appreciated art history in college but don’t have a hedge fund, you probably weren’t lucky enough to be at Christie’s record-breaking art auction last week, where the art house brought in $495 million selling contemporary art made by a bunch of frustrated, poor artists who hated commodities. But here’s a collection of look-alikes that will class up your place for way, way less, and no one will ever know you’re not Leo DiCaprio. Above, the record-breaking Dustheads by Jean-Michel Basquiat, $48.8 million. Below: your new painting by lesser known artist, $200:
