Here is a rather curious story that has emerged over the past few days.

A painting by Salvador Dalí has rememerged after being in a private collection since the 1950s. The 1958 work entitled Madonna Cosmic was clearly inspired by Raphael's The Sistine Madonna in Dresden. It is being put up for sale by the heirs of its previous owner who have decided to offer the painting for private sale via a website. The site contains contains three testimonies in a section entitled 'What the Experts Say' along with other information about the work's provenance. No estimate has been supplied.
