Psychedelic Stella

Charles Thomson, co-founder of the Stuckist art movement, has noted the sale of his own painting Psychedelic Stella - portrait of Stella Vine (2001). Despite the painting's optimistic bright colours in oil and acrylic on canvas, Charles' marriage to Stella was a short-lived disaster. (Better than a long-lived disaster!) The portrait is up for grabs at Auction Atrium's Kensington Sale, which has already begun and has only two more days to run, Lot No. 16611 estimated value £400 to £500 (title link).

Just for the record - it's not me that's flogging it. The last time I saw it, it was in the collection of Harold Werner Rubin, director of the Rivington Gallery (now shut) in Shoreditch.

Hi, Charles

You were so keen to advertise the sale, I assumed it was you flogging it. Whoops! Sorry about that.
