Despite spending a few days outside the New York Stock Exchange and being mentioned everywhere from Gawker to the New York Times, the colorful Dick Grasso portrait by artist Geoffrey Raymond did not attract a rash of bonus-rich Wall Streeters to its Ebay auction. In all, only three people placed bids on it. The winning bid of $3,050.00 came from a bidder in Corona, California, which may mean that this portrait of a historically important Wall Street figure may end up residing on the West Coast.
Raymond isn’t giving up on Wall Street related art, however. He’s painting media figures Jim Cramer and Maria Bartiromo next. After that he plans to paint Hank Paulson. “Hank Greenberg is still in the mix, but has fallen to the back of the pack,” Raymond says.
