A painting by the iconic abstract artist Pablo Picasso sold for a record $179,365,000 at an auction Monday in New York, a Christie's spokesperson said.
The 1955 canvas, "Les femmes d'Alger (Version "O")," Sets a new bar for the contemporary art market.
Previously, the most expensive art work sold at auction was Francis Bacon's "Three Studies of Lucian Freud," Which went for $142 million in 2013. Ref. CNN
