What happened to Rolf Harris's portrait of the Queen?

I reckon Nicholas Witchell has got it and is wanking over it :rofl:

One of disgraced entertainer Rolf Harris's highest profile works of art was his portrait of the Queen, but where is the painting now?

Questions have been asked about the work amid speculation about Harris facing compensation claims after being convicted of a series of sex attacks.

Harris's oil painting was undertaken as part of a BBC television documentary to mark the Queen's 80th birthday. The monarch sat twice for Harris to paint her over the summer of 2005.

After it was unveiled in December that year, the portrait, which took Harris two months to complete, initially went on public display at the Queen's Gallery in Buckingham Palace.

But this was just a six-month display. A Royal Collection spokeswoman says: "It was only loaned to us briefly". She says she did not know where the painting, which is not part of the Royal Collection, ended up.

I imagine it'll be collecting cobwebs in the Whitewall gallery vaults.

The Fail reckons owners of Harris' work are making a killing http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article ... -site.html although The Star says the works are being offloaded at a considerable loss http://www.dailystar.co.uk/news/latest- ... er-verdict

Let them eat rich, expensive, funny-shaped, yellow, eggy buns.
