“A London bridge built up of oil paint and canvas recently helped Christie’s set a new auction record.
On June 18, the classic Claude Monet painting, “Waterloo Bridge, Temps Couvert ,” breezed past its pre-sale estimate at Christie’s in London, selling for $35.7 million to a U.S. collector who was bidding by phone. The evening auction of Impressionist and Modern Art made history by realizing the highest total for any auction ever held in Europe.”
