Heated competition between seven bidders took the price tag to the highest for a work of art at auction in just 12 minutes.

The packed sales room erupted into applause and cheering when the hammer went down.

An unnamed telephone bidder gave the final offer of $119,922,500, including commission...

Being an Auctioneer myself, I'll let you in on a sorta well kept secret on these high-end items.....

most don't sell and by that I mean: Item "X" sells for 119.9 million to a phone bidder...but several weeks go buy and no bank transfer, cashiers check, or cash for that matter shows up for the actual purchase...(buyer backs out, big problem now with Asian bidders/buyers)

you watch this painting will be back up for sale in 9mo's too a year.

This is Sotheby's were talking about. The funds need to be secured before you can bid.

or take a shit, jar it up, label it "merde" and put it on display - yes, folks, art has actually gone to such a low... fucking ridiculous.

$119million for a painting - no matter how good - while so many people in this world starve is just plain evil.
