ART – Bill Murray reveals the painting that saved his life

This video has been doing the rounds on social media and is just lovely.

Bill Murray tells a story at the Press Conference for George Clooney,’s The Monuments Men about how art saved his life when he was first starting out as a comedian on a cold Chicago evening. George Clooney, Matt Damon, Bill Murray, John Goodman, Jean Dujardin, Bob Balaban, Dimitri Leonidas, Producer Grant Heslov and surviving member of the original Monuments Man Harry Ettlinger attend the Press Conference for their movie in London’s National Gallery.


And here is the painting he was speaking of.
