Peek inside Madonna's bedroom

Madonna sells Fernand Léger painting to raise money for girls' education.  Sotheby's announces auction of Cubist work to support projects in Afghanistan and Pakistan.  Leger's Trois Femmes a la Table Rouge hung in the bedroom of Madonna's Central Park West apartment. She bought the painting at Sotheby's in 1990 for $3.4 million. She hopes it is worth $5 million to $7 million — or more — now. She is selling it to benefit girls' education projects in Afghanistan, Pakistan and other countries.
