British artist Lucian Freud (grandson of Sigmund Freud) has just sold one of his paintings for over $33 million dollars! Holy cow, that’s a lot of money!

The artwork, called “Benefits Supervisor Sleeping,” was originally painted 13 years ago in 1995, but has just been sold at a New York auction. It depicts an overweight naked woman sleeping on a sofa.

What’s more interesting is that this is the most amount of money paid for a painting by a living artist in history. That’s pretty incredible! CNN ran an article about it.
