Bear’s favorite artist. Unfortunately not rich enough only have prints in my collection …

“A painting from Claude Monet’s acclaimed Grainstack series has fetched $US81.4 million ($108.8 million) at Christie’s New York auction of impressionist and modern art.

The sale set a new auction record for the artist. The previous auction record for a Monet was $US80.4 million set in 2008.

The 1891 painting, shimmering with hues of reds, pinks, blues and yellow, depicts a close-up of a single cone-shaped stack after harvest.

Monet’s Grainstack series — 25 in all — was painted just steps from his home outside a farmer’s field in the French village of Giverny.”
