The River Thames painted by Monet was sold to an anonymous telephone bidder for almost $35.8 million, which is more than twice its estimated price, the BBC reported Tuesday.
The next auction is scheduled for Tuesday, when Monet's Nympheas, an image of water lilies, is expected to bring in between $20 million and $30 million at Sotheby's auction house.
Monet's water-lily painting Les Arceaux de Roses, Givenchy, was also sold Monday for $17.8 million, less than its pre-sale estimate, the BBC said.
