Vladimir Putin, Artist
When he isn't flexing his pectoral muscles and cutting off gas supplies to large chunks of Europe, Vladimir Putin is a sensitive and caring artist. He donated this masterpiece to a charity auction to raise money for a hospital, a church and a cancer clinic in St Petersburg. (A church? Maybe he was a closet Christian during the Communist regime.) Anyway, his work fetched a staggering 37 million roubles ($1.15m), the highest price ever paid for a painting sold in Russia, according to the BBC. You don't suppose the KGB heavy mob was circulating among all those Russian billionaires! Naw. They were just trying to impress the doll in diamonds.
