Sotherby's flogs Munches for £16.9m

Big money changing hands certainly got Sotherby's women excited yesterday. They were "thrilled" by the "electric" atmosphere as impressionist daubs came under the hammer. A collection of paintings by Edvard Munch fetched £16.9m! "This is an exciting moment for the art world." trilled one of Sotherby's spokeswomen. Piffle! No doubt it was great for Sotherby's and the market, but it had nothing to do with art.
