    Background: One of Jacob Epstein's more controversial works - 'Genesis' was sold at Sotheby's art auction in London today....to the proprietor of a Blackpool waxworks and seaside-style exhibition. The giant sculpture of a pregnant woman fetched GBP4,200. In all 160 works of art fetched a total of over GBP205,000...the highest priced single item being a small water colour painting by Cezanne - 'The Gardener Vallier' which was bought by Mr. Heinz Berggruen for GBP20,500. The same buyer paid GBP7,800 for another Cezanne. International art dealers paid five figure sums quite casually. Toulose-Lautrec was sold for GBP15,500, a Degas for GBP11,000 and a Renoir for GBP14,000.
