In March 1987 Christies auctioned one of Van Gogh's Sunflowers to the Yasuda Fire and Marine Insurance Company of Tokyo for a record 24.75 million Pounds, at the time making it the most expensive painting ever.

Meanwhile back in Australia, we see a portrait of the choice facing the electorate in 1987. Clockwise Left to Right - Paul Keating, Bob Hawke, Joh Bjelke-Petersen, Ian Sinclair and John Howard.
