just when we're in the throes of global recession, this news of a record price paid for a work of art by a British artist just in c/o the LA Times.
ONE HUNDRED AND FORTY-TWO MILL -  the price of dead artist painting dead artist - Bacon's Freud triptych soldThe Bacon work, a triptych from 1969 titled “Three Studies of Lucian Freud,” depicts another painter, Lucian Freud, a friend of Bacon’s -- and ultimately an artistic rival -- sitting in three different positions on the same chair. The three panels are awash in bright orange and beige tones. [source LA TIMES]

That's NINETY MILLION POUNDS STERLING, at today's exchange rate.
£90,000,000 is like £30,000,000 per triptych painting.
Somebody's making BIG BUCKS at the cost of YOUR AUSTERITY - like the Economic War for Profit ever gives any different result other than slavery and misery and worry to the masses. Economy's only fund the rich, get that into your thick skull. Only the global conglomerate FOR PROFIT organisations benefit. You, your family, your planet - fuck that with a big broom handle.
Just fuck you, that's what this elitist art sale says, "Fuck you, slaves!"
