A 10-year-old primary school art prodigy in U.K. has seen his earnings soar to a staggering £1.5 million after the latest sale of his paintings raised almost £250,000 in just 20 minutes. Additionally, a dozen of Kieron Williamson’s latest works are expected to fetch around £100,000 this week. That follows the £242,095 sale last week of 23 pictures snapped up in 20 minutes by e-mail and phone bidders. Kieron — dubbed as Mini Monet — began painting landscapes at five. His first sale of 19 pictures in 2009 raised £14,000. — PTI
