Madonna full frontal sold for £37.5K

The last in a series of six photographs of a naked Madonna by Lee Friedlander has sold for a whopping $37.5k at Christies in New York despite being expected to raise only £15k. The head of photography at Christies described the image as "probably the most explicit" picture of Madonna to date. (And there are a few to choose from).

The other 5 images in the series (which appeared in Playboy in 1985 and feature the singer in her birthday suit aged 20) sold for just $7,170 in 2003.

The picture in question is the most expensive photograph of the singer to date. That'll be for the mantelpiece.
