One of the iconic works from one of the founders of French Impressionism has sold at auction in New York for  $110.7 million.

The price for one Claude Monet’s celebrated “Haystack” series sets a record for an impressionist work.

The previous owners had purchased the painting in 1986 for $2.5 million.

Sotheby’s didn’t provide any details on the new buyer but tweeted there was a bidding war before the final price was achieved
