Bacon Nude £21m

Assuming you were a Saudi prince with money to burn, would you lash out £21m on Francis Bacon's Nude Portrait of Henrietta Moraes (1963)? A spokesman for Christie's in London, where it brought home the bacon, described it as "one of the most seductive and sexually-charged" paintings he had ever seen (title link). I imagine he has led a sheltered life. It looks to me as though the naked woman is being attacked by a giant anaconda. If you think that's sexy ... try this for size: CLICK.
