Bea’s Girls Sell High!: The late Bea Arthur will live on in the hearts of “The Golden Girls” fans forever – and also on the wall of one anonymous art collector! A John Currin painting of the actress, who died in 2009, which shows Bea topless, has sold for a whopping $1.95 million at an auction at Christie’s. The bare-breasted Bea painting first caused controversy in 1991 after some critics called it sexist and misogynistic. Enjoy a NSFW (but it’s art!) look at the nude Bea Arthur painting!
