Michael Winner: Me and my money | This is Money

Michael Winner - collecter of children's illustrations:

WHAT WAS YOUR MOST INDULGENT PURCHASE? MY BEATRIX Potter watercolour of Benjamin Bunny. It is two-and-a-half inches by three inches and cost ?32,000 recently at auction. I started collecting original illustrations from children's books 40 years ago. Everyone sniffed at me at first, but juvenalia has risen most in price in 30 years of any artwork.
