The historic results from Sotheby's Impressionist and Modern Art Evening Sale on Nov. 4 brought in the highest total for a single auction in the company's 270-year history: more than $422 million. Participants in the sales came from over 40 countries, with the highest number of winning bidders from the United States, Europe and Asia. However, the record owed a lot to the sale of three single works, by Giacometti, Modigliani and Van Gogh.
