Lucian freud - National Portrait Gallery - London
Benefits Supervisor Sleeping (1995)
was sold for $33.6 million (£17.2 million)
 at Christie's.
The artist himself said he painted to "astonish, disturb,
seduce, convince" and described Benefits Supervisor Sleeping 
as his "mostimportant work".
Lucian Freud's one-time muse was paid £20 a day to sit for 
a painting expected to fetch so much money. 
But Londoner Sue Tilley said she did not do it
 for the money and had "lovely lunches" with the artist.
