This was the most expensive Monet painting sold, transacted with Sotheby's, and was sold at a record-breaking price of $110,747,000 USD on 14 May 2019.
The choice of colors and treatment of lighting brings out the special charm possessed by Monet. This painting not only withstands shine but in absolutely every environment. 'It looks as glorious in a dark room under a spotlight or struck by direct sunshine,' says Brooke Lampley, Vice Chairman, Global Fine Art @Sotheby's, previously @Christies.
As an Impressionist, the effect was more important than realism. This is the beginning of Monet's journey before he advanced to paint the cathedral in Rouen, the waterlilies in his garden, etc. So you aren't just buying the lush painting of a haystack, but rather a symbol of a hallowed artist just discovering his dominant mode.

Poster with frame: The frames come pre-packed with corners and film and then packed in a box with strong edges to protect the frames. I-beams are used in addition, to give the package additional sturdiness and for multi-item orders (max 3 frames in one package).
Plexiglass used in frames may also carry a protective film but this is often applied to both the front and the back of the glass. This often has a blue hue to it. These protective films can be mistaken for scratches, bubbles, or a colored cast to a print/glass.
