Thank You, Federal Reserve: Modigliani Nude Fetches $157.2 Million at Auction

Nu couché (sur le côté gauche), a reclining nude by the modernist master Amadeo Modigliani, fetched $157.2 million Monday night in New York – the highest price in Sotheby’s history, reports The Guardian.

The painting sold for "nearly six times the painting's last purchase price in 2003," according to Sotheby's.

Thank you, Alan, Ben, and Janet,
