Masterpieces and artworks by artists who have passed away are eternal and invaluable. It is one arena that keeps its doors open even for deceased one’s to make their entry into the Guinness book of world records. And lately, this has been exemplified by a celebrated artist Lucian Freud. His depiction of an overweight nude woman (Sue Tilley, 51, Supervisor of Jobcenter) snoozing has summoned more than a few dough notes to be exhausted. The lady masquerade for this 85-year-old painter for long four-years and to say the utmost she tagged herself his muse. She was christened as “Big Sue” and got introduced to Freud by Mr. Leigh Bowery.
The painting overshadowed the earlier mark of $19.3 million and got sold off for $33.6 million.
