Stuart Little Art

If you look above the head of Jonathan Lipnicki, the small boy between Hugh Laurie and Geena Davis, you'll see Hungarian artist Robert Bereny's avant-garde daub Sleeping Lady with Black Vase (1928) on the wall. It was used as a prop on a set of the Columbia Pictures' film Stuart Little (1999). A decade later art historian Gergely Barki spotted the long-lost daub while watching the film with his daughter Lola. Yesterday the painting fetched over 200,000 euro-thingies at an auction in Budapest. It's a long story (CLICK).
