Year in Review: 2013 by RoseM2

Question 10

What work of art sold for a cool $142.4 million at auction in March of 2013, breaking the world record for most expensive painting sold at auction--a record set the year before by Edward Munch’s “The Scream”? (It was just ousted from the #1 slot this past May, by the $179 million sale of Picasso's Les Femmes d'Alger ("Version O").) Painting and artist both, please.
