£1.68m picture shatters world record
February 15, 2006
A new world record was last night set for a photograph sold at auction when a picture by US photographer Edward Steichen sold for the equivalent of £1.68m – nearly three times its pre-sale estimate.
A private collector bought the picture, called The Pond Moonlight, at Sotheby?s in New York.
