Artwork of a famous Winnipeg location done by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is already garnering a lot of bids on an eBay auction.
Trudeau created a watercolour sketch of the Canadian Museum For Human Rights in Winnipeg last year, shortly before he became P-M.
The framed and signed drawing went up for auction on Friday. The opening bid was 2000 dollars, but by Sunday morning it already jumped up to almost $9200.
In a release, art historian and former president of Sotherby’s Canada David Silcox says the sketch is very well done.
“From a technical point of view it’s at a professional level, although Trudeau has dodged the complexity that watercolour can present to the artist by cleverly isolating the colours from each other. Still it works strongly as an image and an arresting one.”
The bidding is open until February 15th.
The money raised will go to the museum, which opened in 2014.
