Naked Bea Arthur Painting Fetches $1.9 Million

I'll never be able to watch Maude again...

A painting depicting late actress Bea Arthur nude from the waist up sold for nearly $2 million at a New York auction. [...]

Christie's spokesman Koji Inoue called the painting "visually lasting."

"It's historically significant -- it's radical to sexualize someone people think of as asexual," spokesman said. "The painting has a visual toughness to it -- but it's also fun."

Full, uncensored painting is below the fold, if you dare.

UPDATE: SH said I should have put the image above the fold, because you guys love your boobie posts so much... But I'll leave it this way.
