Here is the write-up by a journalist who was not present at the gala, but held a telephone interview with Diane the next day. It comes from the Midi Libre, 24/05/07.
There are two glaring errors:
1) We did not get 10million euros (a tad unlikely), but 10 thousand.
2) The auctioneer was called Maïtre Françoise KUSEL.I (on the right) am not mentioned, nor is the guy on the left, Franck Fontcouberte who is the conductor of the chamber orchestra. Diane is the other lady, and Professor Henri Pujol is the distinguished gentleman in the middle.
