Madonna London, May 28 (IANS) An oil painting depicting pop star Madonna nude with her ex-husband Guy Ritchie will be put up for an auction this week.
Titled “Madonna and Guy”, the painting by Scottish artist Peter Howson created a flutter when it was released in 2005 and is now expected to fetch up to 22,000 pounds, reported

It is being sold by a private collector. Brian Clements from the auctioneers said: “There is no doubt that the recent split of Madonna and Guy has generated increased interest in the painting.

“The painting created a huge amount of controversy when it was unveiled a few years ago and I think it’s safe to say it is one of a kind,” he said.

The pop star and the British director separated last year after a seven-year marriage.
