The picture about was a painting by a well-known TV hostess, actress Ms. Ni Ping done in traditional Chinese style and was sold in a charity auction for the price of RMB or Yuan 1,180,000 (about USD180,015).  It was reported that Ms. Ni repeated told the buyers that she was a beginner and amateur and her works should cost much.  When she saw the price kept going up she grabbed the gavel and stopped the escalation.

For comparison, she perhaps resemble Katie Couric the most, amongst her American peers.
