Madonna & Guy Update
Peter Howson's insultingly crude oil painting Madonna & Guy (2005) failed to reach its reserve price of £15,000 at McTear's auction in Glasgow today. Oh, hard cheese, Mr Private Collector. I'm not posting Howson's tripe again. So here's the real thing, give or take some retouching: detail from Vanity Fair's Madonna Cover of May 2008 (CLICK). How to look good at knocking on 50! Now scroll down or CLICK to compare it with Howson's painting.
