Random: Follow-up on George Washington at Princeton

I see that the estimates of $10,000,000-$15,000,000 ended up being modest for the winning price for the 1779 Charles Willson Peale painting George Washington at Princeton that I mentioned in Thursday's entry. Purchased for a generous $21,296,000, I cannot imagine what one does with that amount (after Christie's takes what I'm sure is their modest and reasonable cut) in order to fill that now-vacant spot on the wall over your fishtank, TV, or PlayStation.
