A painting of American artist Georgia O'Keeffe was sold at auction in New York ror $ 44.4 million. The 1932 painting Jimson Weed/White Flower No 1 fetched more than three times.
Thus, two records were broken. Firstly, the picture “Jimson Weed / White Flower No. 1”, whose name is often translated as “Datura flower”, became the most expensive painting of the Georgia O'Keeffe. It thrashed the previous highest price paid for an O’Keeffe work – $6.2m, which was paid 13 years ago, at Christie's auction in New York.
Secondly, several times exceeded the record for the price ever paid for a work of art created by women. Until now, the most expensive artifact among the works of artists was a picture of Joan Mitchell "Untitled", sold at auction in May for $ 11.9 million.
