A painting of actress Bea Arthur in the buff  has sold for just shy of two million dollars.

What makes the sale price interesting is that Arthur never actually posed for the painting.

Artist John Currin painted it in 1991 from a photograph of Bea Arthur fully clothed.

No word from Christie’s on who bought it.

The Broadway-and-television star died in 2009 at the age of 86.
