Nude Bust of Stephanie Seymour Up for Auction


Back in 2003, when he was still madly in love with his model/actress wife Stephanie Seymour, newspaper tycoon Peter Brant commissioned controversial Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan (he of recent middle finger fame) to make a nude bust of her. But because Cattelan believes in sharing (or more likely, can’t resist a good f-you gesture), he decided to make three. And then Seymour and Brant hit quite the rough patch. Ironically, now that they’ve decided not to get divorced, one of the editions is up for sale at Phillips de Pury, and Seymour’s bust is on the cover of the art sale catalogue. According to the Daily News , it’s estimated that the artwork (which we personally find super creepy) will fetch more than $1.5 million. Trophy wife, indeed. [via ANIMAL]
