nucklehead Posted November 25, 2015 Share Posted November 25, 2015 I am so not bidding on this. http://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/canada/controversial-harper-nude-painting-for-sale-again/ar-BBnp41S?ocid=spartanntp Quote A controversial painting of former prime minister Stephen Harper in the buff is back on the market. And, more than three years after the artwork first sparked headlines, the identity of its owner has been revealed. The work by Ontario-based artist Margaret Sutherland — titled "Emperor Haute Couture" — was listed on Kijiji earlier this month for $8,800. Three binders of press clippings and a signature book will also be included. The Edmonton Journal reported Monday that the painting belongs to Danielle Potvin, a retired civil servant who was advised to keep the purchase quiet in 2012 for the sake of her career. The newspaper reports she is now selling the conversation-starting piece to cover home renovations. The art was reportedly purchased from a Toronto gallery for $5,000.
