Picasso Sale

This ghastly daub Jeune Fille Endormie (1935) by Pablo Picasso fetched over £13m at Christie's auction house in London. Once an artist has established himself as a Big Name, nobody in the art establishment has the guts to reassess his work and say "Cobblers". At least it went for a good cause: scientific research at the University of Sydney (title link).
