The painting is the most highly estimated works of art to be offered at auction in Europe, with a pre-sale estimate of between £30–40 million.

Ha. I looked at the title of this thread too quickly and thought that it was about the dude Michael Alig killed in the NYC club scene. But that was "Angel" Melendez. My bad. :thumbdown:

I'm sure there are some film makers, writers and musicians out there that make tons of money but I'm not sure if they make 51.2 million!!! That's a lot of money! Maybe the Stones or Steven Spielberg?? Maybe some really famous actors or actresses make that too?? We know Oprah makes more! Anybody know of any contemporary visual artists that make that kind of money???

She's the total package. She can cook, decorate, grow a garden, do time in prison, have a dog named Paw-Paw, has her own line of paint and has had a colorful life. I bet she may know some tricks.

 

Again, I leave it to your imaginations. :devil:
