Monet’s Meules sells for $110 Million

Claude Monet’s ‘Meules’ sold for $110 Million at a Sotheby’s auction shattering the record for the highest price ever paid for a Monet work and also a record for an Impressionist work of art. It’s the first time the work has come to auction since 1986.

Meules was first acquired by a wife of a wealthy Chicago businessman, Bertha Honore Palmer, in 1982. She passed down the work of art to family members after her death.
