Record sale for artwork by female artist | Georgia O’Keeffe

This stunning painting by Georgia O’Keeffe has broken the record for an artwork by a female artist set by an equally stunning Joan Mitchell piece sold at auction at Sotheby’s, New York.

‘Jimson Weed/White Flower No 1’ sold for $44m (£28.8m), which dwarfs the $11.9m (£7.5m) set by the sale of Mitchell’s work ‘Untitled’, sold earlier in the year.
