Nude Madonna Auction
Christie's London is laying off staff, due to the recession, while Christie's New York is cock-a-hoop to be selling a Lee Friedlander photo of Madonna in the nuddy, shot before she was famous (1979) and needed cash. She was paid £17 ($25) for a photo shoot that Friedlander sold to Playboy. Christie's now values this photo at up to £10,000 ($15,000). It's Lot 6 in Icons of Glamour and Style: the Constantiner Collection Part II, up for grabs at the Rockefeller Plaza on 12 February. Click the title link to view Madonna without my smiley censorship!
