Edvard Munch must be pretty stoked that his infamous 1895 crayon drawing deemed "The Scream" has reportedly just sold for $119.9 million! At that price, this makes it the most expensive artwork ever sold at auction.
Previous estimates suggested the famous pastel artwork could fetch anywhere from $80 million to $200 million. The previous record-holding work was a 1932 Pablo Picasso painting called "Nude, Green, Leaves, and Bust," which sold in 2010 for $106.5 million.
According to NYTimes, the auction conducted by Sotheby's New York lasted for a mere twelve minutes. The winning bid was made via phone, so you know the person on the other line must be a pretty high roller.
