USA: Botticelli painting sold for 92.2 million dollars at Sotheby’s auction

Mandatory Credit: Sotheby’s

A portrait by Italian painter Sandro Botticelli of a “Young Man Holding a Roundel” was sold for 92.2 million dollars at a Sotheby’s auction streamed online from New York City on Thursday.

It became Botticelli’s most expensive artwork and the second most expensive painting by an Old Master ever auctioned.

The portrait, which was made around 1480, shows a young man, whose identity is unknown, holding a roundel with an image of a saint originally painted by Bartolommeo Bulgarini in the 14th century.

The painting is believed to have been bought by a Russian-speaking collector.
