BBC Art Sale Pics
BBC News is promoting an Impressionist and Modern Art auction to be held by Sotheby's in London on 25 June. I'm not sure why Sotherby's has been favoured in this way; the corporation isn't supposed to advertise. Nine artworks up for grabs at insanely high prices are shown. Claude Monet's La Plage a Trouville (above) is the best of a bad bunch. An early Magritte and Cezanne's Verre et Poires are worth a look, but the rest are awful tosh for clueless fat cats (title link).
