Texan oil tycoons going wild to acquire the painting

Texas - The reported $192 million 'transfer fee' targeting a reclusive Lily Pond Lane, East Hampton art buff has been rubbished as wildly optimistic pie-in-the-sky.

Leonardo Da Vinci's fabulous Salvator Mundi dazzled the art world at London's Royal Academy last year when millions flocked to marvel at the latest of greatest of all grand masters' resurrected treasures.

And now it's got Dallas Museum of Art curators salivating at the fantasy that its reclusive owner 'actually needs the cash', heheh.

Which, taking in fees and taxes and stuff, would see the painting fetch little change from $200 million.

A hasty whip-round of the Museum's top oil tycoon patrons might easily see $100 stumped up in a day or two.

Recent valuations from the That's Rich! List have assessed the net worth of this bunch of Dallas cowboys second in the world behind Guggenheim supporters - with an estimated value of around $1.5 billion.

"$200 million? It's still a helluva price to pay for a new quarterback," the art correspondent at celeb fanzine LA HagFagSlagMag.con tweeted this evening.

Brett Favre is 69.
