by Stewart Waltzer
Sotheby’s evening sale of Impressionist and modern art on Nov. 7, 2006, sold 72 of the 83 lots offered, or 86.8 percent, for a total of $238,670,400, including the auction-house premium (20 percent on the first $200,000, and 12 percent on the rest). The total was the highest for a single sale at Sotheby’s since 1990. The prices given here are at the hammer.
