Re: The Fallen Madonna with the Big Boobies

Can't be the last copy. I read a short while ago, some Lord Bath (sorry for the ignorance of a foreigner) received a copy from BBC. Unless his family sold it, it must still ba around?

That must be the copy that General Von Klinkerhoffen had made. They planned to smuggle it to Berlin in a sausage but it was intercepted by two English pilots.

Re: The Fallen Madonna with the Big Boobies

LOL, you really got into the story, eih?

<<It is believed the painting was designed by a set maker for the show and several were made >> source

I too find it interesting that nobody seems to care about the name of who really created it.

I find it interesting that noone cared about that painting with the big yellow flowers in a vase gifted to Rene's mother/the muse/ by a dutch painter!

The real painter was of course van Klomp, not Clump.

The original painting was taken to Spain and most forgeries were made by Gruber and Leclerc.
