|"Le Bassin Aux Nympheas" by Claude Monet recently priced at more than $80 million|
If $40 mil for one painting got your attention, please note Monet’s “Le Bassin Aux Nympheas, 1919” sold at Christie's, London on June 2008, for $80,451,178. In 1971, you could have had the same water lilies painting for a mere $320,000. One can only wonder what prices Monet painting will fetch in the future.
Curiosity grabbed me now I had to see more works by Monet (1840-1926) and in doing so was amazed at how prolific this French master was during his long career.
Since it would be very expensive and logistically challenging to visit Monet’s vast repertoire, however, Wikipedia and other Internet sites do a fine job of cataloging Monet.
