Monet Painting Sells for Record $81.4 Million at Christie’s – Bloomberg

That’s some high ‘dollah’ grain.

Claude Monet’s grain stack painting fetched a record $81.4 million in New York on Wednesday after a 14-minute bidding war.

The 1891 canvas, “Meule,” was offered at Christie’s Impressionist and modern art sale. Estimated at $45 million, it was sold without a guarantee by an anonymous American collector, according to the auction house.
