Bea Arthur rose to fame as a strong, take-no-crap woman on sitcoms like â€œMaudeâ€ and â€œThe Golden Girlsâ€, and though her deep voice and severe, no-nonsense haircut were usually regarded as masculine traits, some men found her attitude sexy. One man in particular found it sexy enough to want to paint her in the buff, and he did. Artist John Currin painted the Golden Girl in a nude pose in 1991, although he stressed that he worked from a clothed photo of the actress. The painting has now gone for $1.9 million at auction, but Facebook apparently doesnâ€™t want the photo posted on their site. According to The Daily Beast, they werenâ€™t allowed to upload it due to the exposed breasts in the painting, although Facebook has said before that art doesnâ€™t apply to that rule. Looks like Howard's mother.
