19th Century Masterpiece by Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema Brings a Record $35.9 Million at Sotheby's

A friend sold this piece at Sotheby's for about 10x it's estimate. When asked Is it really worth it? let your eyes and your bank account do the answering. Personally, I'd say YES!
Good question to consider: How many of these are still in private hands and may come on the market? Not enough to make this work any less valuable than the price it sold for.
