    Default Art by Rolf Harris

    By Genevieve Hassan (entertainment reporter, BBC News):

     76055722 76055721 - Art by Rolf Harris

    Following Rolf Harris's conviction for indecent assaults against four girls, the art world has begun to distance itself from the disgraced entertainer.

    Galleries that once sold his works have removed Harris's limited-edition prints and sculptures from sale.

    While auction site eBay is still listing private sales, it is coming under pressure to pull items associated with him - although it continues to sell items associated with other disgraced celebrities including Jimmy Savile and rock band Lostprophets - whose former singer Ian Watkins is serving 29 years for serious child sex offences.

    Experts say that since Harris's name has been tainted, his art - which previously fetched hefty sums - has become worthless.

    But can art ever be separated from the artist? And what about people who already possess a piece of the entertainer's work - should they feel guilty about owning and displaying it?

    One woman, whose painting of Bonnie Tyler by Harris was estimated to be worth up to 50,000, has said she might burn it.

    In that pic it looks like he's tried to paint the Colombian flag but made a right fuckin' mess of it.
