Sue


On Tuesday evening, Lucien Freud overtook Jeff Koons, as the priciest living artist. Freud’s seven foot-long painting titled, “Sue”, sold at auction for $33.6 million US, surpassing “Hanging Heart (Magenta/Gold)”, which sold last year for $23.6 million.

Hell, for $33.6 million, I would part with my entire body of work — and I might even throw-in a shoeshine and ham sandwich, to sweeten the deal.
