Ronnie Kray, Artist!
Seven daubs by gangster Ronnie Kray, painted while doing porridge in Parkhurst Prison on the Isle of Wight, are up for grabs at Mander Auctions in Suffolk on 26 July, starting 11am. Their estimated value is £1,500 to £2,000 each. It wouldn't surprise me if they make more. Despite being vicious criminals, the Krays still have admirers in the East End of London who see them as local lads made good! And so English-sounding: Reggie and Ronnie. Most of today's criminals that hit the headlines in the UK have unpronounceable foreign names.
