Topless Painting Of Bea Arthur Sold For $9 Million, John Currin’s “Bea Arthur Naked,” a painting depicting a 69-year-old, topless, saggy breasted Bea Arthur with a blank expression on her face, was auctioned off at Christie’s for nearly $2 million. The anonymous bidder bought the painting for $1.9M over the phone. Hey, I feel ya. I would have embarrassed to do it in person too.
Bea Arthur never actually sat for the painting but the piece was
still labeled historically significant. Said Christie’s spokesman Koji
Inoue, “It’s radical to sexualize someone people think of as asexual.”
Well clearly that guy has never gone on Google and typed in “granny porn.”
