Thank You Janet Yellen: Monet Painting Sells for Record $81.4 Million

Claude Monet’s grain stack painting fetched a record $81.4 million for the artist on Wednesday after a 14-minute bidding war, reports Bloomberg.

Christie’s set auction records for two major artists on Wednesday -- Monet and Wassily Kandinsky whose 1935 abstract composition “Rigide et courbe" fetched $23.3 million.

The Monet, which was estimated to sell at $45 million, last appeared at auction in 1999, when it sold for $12 million. according to Bloomberg.
