Monet Painting Sells For $110.7 Million

2019-05-16 02:59:451 Oct 2018 01:53 AM EST

A painting from Claude Monet's "Haystacks" series has sold for $110.7 million, making it the most expensive Impressionist artwork ever to be bought at auction, according to Sotheby's in New York. It took six bidders just eight minutes to reach a record-breaking sum for the oil painting, which went to an anonymous bidder Tuesday. While the hammer price -- the highest bid -- came in just under $100 million, the addition of a buyer's premium -- the fee charged by auction houses -- took the final price to $110.7 million.
