It cost me a fortune but I bought it. It shall be packaged in a titanium box, wrapped in a thick coating of plutonium and sealed in a lead sarcophagus. It will then be moved to a location in the desert where they used to test nuclear devices. I have retained the services of a large drill. It shall dig a shaft to the mantle of the Earth and we will place the sarcophagus at the bottom. I will then place a cursed Egyptian mummy, a few native American graves and pour a thousand cubic yards of cement and rebar sealing it in forever.

It was the least I could do.

I used to think she was a man in drag and wondered if his real name was Arthur.

A Christie's spokesman called the painting "visually lasting."

Nice way of saying the next item up for bids is Mind Bleach.

This is obscene.  It's obscene the way Feds have inflated the equity markets so that millionaire "job creators" can spend this kind of coin on "artwork".

BTW, Bea Aurthur was nice looking when she was young.

I know 8 year olds who paint better than that.

Nude Barneys aren't pretty, though.

We weren't fully done here until cantankerous gnome finished the meme.

I never get tired of that one, it's always a fun back and forth.

================

She was in the Marines during WWII.  It was court martial, immoral behavior (she contracted VD, yes, with a guy) and insubordination.

There are several interesting pieces of art that involve Bea Arthur out there. (NSFW)

I'm guessing the purchaser is someone with an idea what's it like to be a fembot living in a manbot's manputer world.

Her original name was Bernice Frankel.

No mention of the truckloads of eye bleach and brain wash that accompanied the painting.

Dammit, that's what it was. I was thinking it was Quick Change for some reason, and I was failing in my google-fu looking for the quote.

This is proof that taxes need to be increased on millionaires. Just to save them from having to come home and see that painting every night.

I had assumed the artist painted it to defictionalize the joke in Airheads.

However- "Currin -- "Bea Arthur Naked," oil on canvas, Painted in 1991."

Airheads came out in 1994, so the Airheads joke was based on Currin's work.
 
2013-05-16 11:06:57 AM
I need to get in on this scam.

Regardless of subject matter, that's a TERRIBLE painting, not worthy of the minimum payment offered for mediocre stock photos.

If this guy can sell a barely Art Institute application level painting for $1.9m, clearly I'm in the wrong racket.
