Modigliani Record

Yesterday in New York Christie’s sold Amedeo Modigliani's Nu couche (1917-18) for a record $170,405,000, the second highest price ever achieved at auction for a work of art. How times have changed. When Modigliani first showed this oil painting in Paris, it drew a crowd to the gallery window and the local police ordered the exhibition to be shut down immediately (CLICK).
