L’Amour For Sale

This magnificent painting by William Bouguereau - L’Amour et Psyché (1899) - had its last public showing at the Paris Exposition Universelle in 1900 and has been in private hands ever since. It will be featured in Sotheby’s New York auction of 19th Century European Art on 23 April. Its estimated value is $1.8m to $2.2m (title link). I'll be amazed if it doesn't sell for a lot more than that.
