Art expert discovers £22m Manet self portrait had beard filled in with crayon

Really snobby pillock on the radio this morning saying that it only went for £20 million or so because there is new generation of not very well educated people wanting to invest in art. Effectively, a real aficionado would have paid the expected price of £50 million or whatever.
A different world.
Give me Beryl Cook any day. At least it is meant to give you a chuckle
Mind you, I wouldn't mind being so uneducated I could only afford £20m on a crappy sketch.
Seems you don't get a lot for your Manet these days.
