Roy Lichtenstein: Nurse

nurseThis morning I discovered that my blog had 123 views from 95 visitors (from 13 countries) yesterday (November 10, 2015). This is way beyond the usual 20 to 30 daily views I normally get. I found out that most of the traffic was from visitors using the search terms “roy lichtenstein nurse.” (A previous blog post showed a study for Nurse.)
It turns out that Roy Lichtenstein’s Nurse (1964) was sold last November 9, 2015 by Christie’s for US$ 95,365,000 (including fees), a new record for a Lichtenstein work. (The previous record was when his Woman with Flowered Hat (1963) was sold for $56,123,750 on May 15, 2013.)
