Georgia O’Keeffe painting breaks auction records


ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – One of the most expensive paintings ever sold at auction is from right here in New Mexico.

Georgia O’Keeffe’s “Jimson Weed, White Flower No. 1” smashed records in May when it sold for nearly $44.5 million to an anonymous buyer.

According CBS News, that’s three times higher than the previous auction record for a female artist. Also on the list were several Picasso’s.
