Nude Madonna And Ritchie Painting Fails To Sell

A bizarre nude painting of MADONNA and her ex-husband GUY RITCHIE has failed sell at auction in Scotland.
The artwork, by Scottish painter Peter Howson, shows a grotesquely muscular Madonna laying naked on a bed, while a square-jawed Ritchie looks on.
It went under the hammer in Glasgow on Saturday (30May09) with an estimated sale price of $33,000 (£22,000) but it never made it past the reserve price of $22,000 (£15,000).
An auction house spokesman says, "The auction was very successful, however, surprisingly Peter Howson's controversial piece 'Madonna & Guy' did not sell on the day. The painting is still for sale and we would be delighted to hear from anyone who is interested in this much talked about piece of Scottish art history."
Madonna and Ritchie finalised their divorce in January (09).
