Tuesday, May 20, 2008
Lucian Freud has become the most expensive living artist at auction with his “Big Sue” painting. The large naked woman painted on a couch is called “Benefits Supervisor Sleeping” and sold for $33.6 million at Christies last week. The sitter is Sue Tilley and she sat for Freud over a four year period.
