Art Imitates Life for Lehman CEO

Green -- Lehman's official color -- was reserved for use by Lehman workers and their families; black and blue were for everyone else. Today, more than a third of the scribbles on the portrait are in green. Among the green messages, presumably directed at Fuld: "25,000 unemployed; I hope you are happy," "Your employees bled green for you," "You are a coward," and "You broke our heart."

Other messages were less polite, including some crude interpretations of Fuld's first name.

At a congressional hearing on the financial crisis last month, Fuld said he took "full responsibility" for the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers and "felt horrible" about it.

"This is a pain," he said, "that will stay with me the rest of my life."
