The prize for highest-selling lot at Christie’s last night (full write-up here) actually went to two pieces: a Fauve Henri Matisse still-life, Les Pivoines (1907), and a Paul Cézanne figure Joueur de cartes, painted between 1890 and 1896.

Both hammered down for $17 million, which meant a total price of $19,122,500 for each work, with premium.
