Russian Sale

Vasily Vereshchagin's monumental Crucifixion by the Romans fetched £1,721,250 ($2,659,331) in Christie's auction of Russian Art in London today. I hope everyone is noticing that the big auction houses are following Coxsoft Art's golden rule for photographing works of art: When in doubt, put a pretty girl in front of it. In this case, she does give scale to the painting (title link).
