Monet’s Les Peupliers is set to fetch $25 Million dollars at Christie’s New York on May 4th 2011
Les Peupliers was actually bought in 2000 for just over $7 Million, 11 years later it’s expected to sell for $25 Million, that’s quite a good return on your investment! The auction record for a Monet was $80.4 Million for Le Bassin aux Nympheas, which was sold in May 2008.
Conor Jordan, head of Impressionist & Modern art at Christie’s explains that “We anticipate great enthusiasm from many collectors, dealers and museum directors who have been eager for a quintessential Monet scene such as this.”
Monet’s Les Peupliers actually sold for £13,489,500 Million ($22,482,500) on the 4th May, 2011 to a private American collector.
