A painting of actress Bea Arthur topless has sold for $1.9 million at a New York City auction.
The painting is by artist John Currin and is titled “Bea Arthur Naked.” It sold at Christie’s auction of postwar and contemporary art on Wednesday. It had been expected to bring in between $1.8 million and $2.5 million.
Christie’s hasn’t said who bought it.
The 1991 oil painting depicts the late television actress nude from the waist up. Christie’s said Thursday the image was based on a photograph of her with her clothes on.
Arthur gained fame for her Emmy Award-winning roles in Maude and The Golden Girls in the 1970s and ’80s. She died of cancer in 2009 at age 86.

Los Angeles County prosecutors say they’ve charged a former Days of Our Lives actor with selling cocaine out of his Agoura Hills home.
Spokeswoman Jane Robison says Dylan Michael Patton was charged Thursday with one count of cocaine possession.
Sheriff’s deputies arrested Patton after searching his home with a warrant Tuesday. They say they seized an unspecified amount of cocaine.
Patton played the role of Will Horton from February 2009 to January 2010 in more than 100 episodes of the long-running soap opera. His character is the son of Sami Brady, who is played by Alison Sweeney.
If convicted, Patton faces up to nine years in prison.
It isn’t clear whether Patton currently has a lawyer or a publicist. A phone number listed in his name was not set up to receive messages.
