New York - The selfie is thought to have been inspired by the aritst's brief stay at an East Ham, London massage parlor where two voluptuous masseuses plied him with drink before getting out an old Polaroid.
Tonight bidding for the 10" x 6" masterpiece went crazy as Chinese and Qatari nabobs fought to clinch the world record-breaking pic.
In the end it was snapped up for a cool $50million plus commission by an anonymous telephone bidder subsequently identified as 'some Russian cunt' - uh, count!.
Auctioneers SuvverBees NYC said the record price was absolutely unprecedented given the artist was a totally talentless, dreadful old soak whose works all need massive doses of imagination to be appreciated for their intrinsic worth. Yeah.
It is thought the picture will hang at the Kremlin Palace of Cold Ho Culture outside the Lublianka in Moscow's Red Square.
