    Question Would you pay for a naked picture of Bea Arthur?

    Would You Pay $2 Million for This Painting of Naked Bea Arthur? [NSFW]

    Artist John Currin painted this portrait (which Bea didn't model for) of the late, great Golden Girl in 1991. The New Yorker referred to it as part of a series by Currin that featured "acrid fantasy portraits of menopausal women." I think it's quite beautiful.

    The painting is up for auction today and is expected to go for between $1.8-2.5 million..




    I looked at it and... ... they'd have to pay me $2 million to take it.

    Kimmel wrote on his official Twitter account: "Contrary to 'news' reports, I didn't buy the Bea Arthur painting - not even for @realjeffreyross - but I did buy the Mona Lisa Lampanelli."

    Earlier on Friday, the comedian confirmed on Twitter that he was the person who spent $1.9 million on a 1991 nude portrait of Arthur by artist John Currin, and that he has given the painting to fellow comedian Jeff Ross...

    Considering the way she dressed on tv, I can only assume she would look better nekkid, but I'll leave that test to those with the mega bucks.

    I never liked her. That aside, the painting looks like it was done by an amateur. She didn't sit for it. I think the frame would be worth more.

    When I watched Maude many moons ago it was , Adrienne Barbeau that played her daughter that turned heads.
    It's my opinion if no link provided.

    If it was done in '91 then Bea must have known about it. I wonder what she thought? I like/ liked her. A very classy elegant actress. The painting looks as good as some of the younger half dressed fake boob and lips pretending to be television nowadays.

    Is this a trick question? Hell to the yes I would.

    What else am I going to hang next to my Rue McClanahan nude?

    "Manly"? Look out, gender police are all up in this thread!
