Bea's Golden Girls
If you're in New York, you can check out the exhibit The Figure and Dr. Freud at Haunch of Venison. The exhibit "focuses on the psychological theories developed by Sigmund Freud as a critical lens through which to observe the inner psyches of both artist and subject." It features a nude painting of Bea Authur. I have no idea if she posed for it, but if she did, it's pretty impressive. The painting is by John Curran and it's called, appropriately, Bea Arthur Nude. See the whole thing here.
