At auction, Christie's purchased a painting by Roy Lichtenstein "Nude with Joyous Painting". During the auction, which took place on July 10, the value of the lot reached 46.2 million dollars. The auction was held simultaneously in four cities around the world: new York, Hong Kong, Paris and London. The pop art piece was created in 1994, three years before the author's death. The work is done in a recognizable author's manner: part of the space is filled with dots.

Roy Lichtenstein taught at Rutgers University, and in 1961 presented the first works in the style of pop art, using elements of comics, as well as magazine graphics. Many of them are made in the technique of fixed drawing. At the auction, in addition to the above picture, works by Rene Magritte and Pablo Picasso were sold.
