    A Claude Monet painting from his celebrated “Meules” (Haystacks) series drew US$110.7 million in New York on Tuesday in an auction record for the French Impressionist master. The sale at Sotheby's - the first time the work had come to auction since 1986 - fetched one of the 10 highest prices ever seen at auction.
