Lucien Freud and Francis Bacon achieve record sales

Never have liked their work much, but Lucien Freud and Francis Bacon have been setting auction records for sales of their paintings. The piece by Lucien Freud seems to have caught the temper of the times - it is called "Benefits Supervisor Sleeping", and is "a lifesized depiction of a voluptuous civil servant lying naked" on a sofa. So sorry that Cat vetoed the picture.
