There’s a feeding frenzy that has developed around the British child who paints landscapes. A £150,000 gallery show sold out in half an hour according to news reports with buyers camping out and traveling from the US to purchase the works.

Kieron Williamson, dubbed the ‘mini Monet’, attracted buyers from all over the world when 33 of his paintings were put up for sale, with one couple from Philadelphia camping outside the gallery for two days before the exhibition started on Friday.
