Meanwhile, the “Pond with water lilies” (1917/19) of the same Monet became the most expensive lot of the evening. Gentle, almost transparent work, which was tentatively estimated at 30-50 million dollars, was bought for 31.8 million. However, this is more than a modest result compared to “Water Lilies in Blossom” (ca. 1914 - 1917), which in May went away for $ 84.7 million during the fabulous sale of the Peggy and David Rockefeller collections.Pond with water liliesClod Monet1918, 100.7 × 200.8 cm. A pleasant surprise was presented by Monet's winter landscape “The Snow Effect at Giverny” (1893). The picture appeared on the market just a few months after it was one of the central exhibits of the exhibition “Monet and Architecture” in the National Gallery in London. Her estimate ranged from $ 5 to $ 8 million, but an energetic five-minute battle brought the cost of work to $ 15.5 million (with a premium).The snow effect in GivernyKlod Monet 1893, 65.4 × 92.7. Another surprise for the auction participants was “The Woman with the Mandolin” by Tamara de Lempicki. For the lady in the azure dress, depicted in a recognizable contrasting, angular style of the artist, they planned to help out 6-8 million dollars. The result surpassed even bold expectations and amounted to 9.1 million dollars in view of the premium. This figure was a new world record for Lempitsky's works.
