A paedophile profits

Section:

Jailed paedophile Rolf Harris set to profit from sale of first original work since he was jailed

 

Since he was jailed, no painting by the filthy paedophile Rolf Harris has been sold at auction. That’s now about to change given a work by the disgraced 85-year old is being offered in an online auction that ends on 6th September.

 

Listed by auctioneers Robson Kay – who describe themselves as “corporate recovery agents” – the 182cm by 121cm mixed media painting dates to 1980 and features Harris’ signature in large lettering. It is named ‘Outback Scene’ and was purchased for £14,000 in 2004 by its current owner. He then declined an offer of £44,000 for it in 2008 prior to pervert Harris’ 2014 conviction.

 

Of the work, which is now being marketed with a much reduced pre-sale estimate of just £5,000 to £10,000, Jonathan Kay of Robson Kay told the Mail Online:

 

“I suspect there are people who might want it but would be worried what others think and I suspect there are those who like the controversy of having such a work and using it as a conversation piece at a dinner party”.

 

“Personally, I wouldn’t have it in my home. I discussed it internally and decided it was unlikely our other clients will think poorly of us if we sold it”.

 

“We are an online auction and so far we can tell that 17 people are watching this item. It might they are curious as to how it fares or they could be serious buyers”.

 

If the work does sell, Harris will himself profit. Under the Artist’s Resale Rights (ARR) scheme, the child abusing monster will receive 4% of the sale price.
