Claude Monet (1840-1926) Le bassin aux nymphéas signed and dated 'Claude Monet 1919' (lower right) oil on canvas 39½ x 79 1/8 in. (100.4 x 201 cm.) Painted in 1919 ...nice, I'll take two. Selling price £40,921,250 (36.5 million before tax) Enlarged image zoom and detail at Christie's HERE. Easily the highest paid for a Monet although as I've mentioned before nowhere near the highest ever, which as I also said, was a load of Pollocks.
