Benefits Supervisor Sleeping sets record

The portrait Benefits Supervisor Sleeping (1995) by Lucian Freud (b. 1922), sold at Christie's N.Y. for $33.6 million, has set a new world record for a painting by a living artist.
The painting depicts the naked portrait of Sue Tilley lying on a sofa.
German-born and grandson of Sigmund Freud, british painter Lucian Freud is known for his sincere and revealing naked portraits.

This picture is the living proof that people now adays are much fatter than before. In renaissance art women were a little fat. Now they are really obese... It's the changing of times reflected in art.
