Art Auction's World Record-Breaking PICASSO Painting - "Nude, Green Leaves and Bust"

This is a copy of Pablo Picasso's painting displayed in the window outside Christie's New York at Rockefeller Center. The work is called Nude, Green Leaves and Bust, a sensuous and stunning masterpiece from Picasso’s celebrated 1932 series of paintings depicting his muse and mistress Marie-Thérèse Walter. Last week, the painting, from the Collection of Mrs. Sidney F. Brody, sold for a record $106,482,500, breaking the previous world record for any work of art sold at auction. The May 4 Evening Sale portion of the Brody Collection also achieved the highest total for a single-owner sale offered at Christie’s New York.
