Would You Pay $2 Million for This Painting of Naked Bea Arthur? [NSFW]S

Artist John Currin painted this portrait (which Bea didn't model for) of the late, great Golden Girl in 1991. The New Yorker referred to it as part of a series by Currin that featured "acrid fantasy portraits of menopausal women." I think it's quite beautiful.

The painting is up for auction today and is expected to go for between $1.8-2.5 million... unless of course it's used as part of hostage negotiations with these airheads.
