Artist Jon Currin just sold a very “revealing” painting of TV Golden Girl Bea Arthur. The painting depicts a 69-year-old, topless Bea. An anonymous bidder purchased the painting for $1.9M. The transaction was completed over the phone.
Currin completed the painting in 1991 when Bea Arthur was still alive. She died in 2009 of cancer after reaching becoming a cult icon for her Emmy Award winning role of Dorothy in Golden Girls.
The picture isn’t actually a true reflection of Bea... she never sat for the painting.
We’re not sure if the late, great Bea Arthur would approve! Hope she isn’t rolling over in her grave.
