In its evening sale of Impressionist and modern art on Nov. 2, 2010, Sothebyís New York sold Amedeo Modiglianiís superb 1917 pin-up, Nu Assis Sur un Divan (La Belle Romaine), for $69 million, far above the $40 million presale estimate and a new auction record for the artist. The result is more than double the previous price for a Modigliani painting, $31.3 million paid for a portrait of the artistís wife, Jeanne Hebuterne, in November 2004.
