You know we love us Bea Arthur something fierce here at NewNowNext, and we would do anything to own a painting of the iconic Golden Girls actor, but even we ain’t shelling out $2 million for a painting of Miss Arthur.

That’s right folks, $2 million, the amount a 1991 painting of a nude Bea, by acclaimed American artist John Currin, is expected to fetch at auction today. It is a rather lovely painting, as you can see here, and $2 million ain’t bad for a Currin, but sadly, we just don’t have the funds.

Now if you’ll excuse us, we must go comb Etsy for some Estelle Getty prints.
