An artist took an order to paint a portrait of a very ugly and arrogant woman. Everyone tried to dissuade him, claiming that she wouldn’t pay a penny, because the portrait would be bad. And so it happened. But two days later, the woman returned and begged the artist to sell her the portrait. Why?
The artist sent the portrait to an exhibition and called it The Penny Pincher. It triggered gossips, and the woman had to ask the artist to remove the portrait from the exhibition.
