Peploe's Roses

Remember Coxsoft's advice? When in doubt, pose a pretty girl beside it. Here's McTear's Auctioneers' very pretty girl holding Samuel John Peploe's Pink Roses, which fetched £225,000 at auction in Glasgow on Thursday (CLICK). Fifty years ago a bossy Scottish wife sent her husband out to buy a painting of roses. When he returned with the Peploe, she disliked it and consigned it to the spare room. Can't say I blame her. The seller inherited it when his father died.
