Maurice de Vlaminck’s 1905 springtime painting breaks record bid at $22.5 million

Maurice de Vlaminck’s work broke all records at Christie’s when the French artist’s 1905 Paysage de Banlieue, oil painting on canvas, fetched $22,482,500. It highlighted a ‘vividly-hued’ landscape, which experts describe as ‘a a fitting tribute to springtime in New York.’. The winning bidder was Conor Jordan, head of Impressionist & Modern Art at Christie’s New York, on behalf of an unidentified client. The previous record of the artist’s work set in 1990, which fetched $10,756,419 for his work Les Pecheurs a Nanterre.
