May 16, 2018
Sotheby's just set a record for late artist Amadeo Modigliani. His 1917 masterpiece, "Nu Couche," just sold for $139 million, but when the auction house's fees are tacked on, the buyer will shell out more than $157 million. The piece is one of 22 reclining nudes the Jewish-Italian artist painted at the turn of the 19th century. InsideEdition.com's Mara Montalbano (https://twitter.com/MaraMontalbano) has more.
