(Newser) – After failing to sell at auction last month, a painting of Madonna in the buff with ex Guy Ritchie has found a buyer, the BBC reports. An anonymous collector paid more than the $24,000 reserve price demanded by a Scottish house. “We were very confident we would find the right buyer for Madonna and Guy,” an auction-house employee said of Peter Howson’s 2005 oil painting.

“Although we cannot divulge the name of the buyer, we can confirm that the painting will be leaving Scotland,” the employee said.
