One of the last great Turner masterpieces remaining in private hands set a world auction record for the artist late on Wednesday, Sotheby's said.

Rome, From Mount Aventine, sold for £30.3 million, including buyer's premium, easily beating its estimate of £15-20 million.

The result also represents the highest price for any pre-20th Century British artist ever sold at auction, a spokeswoman said.

Four bidders competed for the work, driving the price ever higher, before it was bought by one of them on the phone to the central London saleroom.

The auction coincided with a wider moment of interest in JMW Turner, with a ground breaking exhibition at Tate Britain and Mike Leigh's film Mr Turner, starring Timothy Spall.]]>

The trends to spot are trends that have been going on for a few years now. Christie’s is privately held, and therefore better positioned to offer deals to buyers and sellers, so it fared better than Sotheby’s, which has to please shareholders. Andy Warhol, absolutely strong as always. Barnett Newman, there are so few works available that each one is sure to be a hit. Mark Rothko, who doesn’t like Rothko? That said, who doesn’t like to look at this stuff? The Cy Twombly blackboard is almost the Platonic ideal of that kind of work. ]]>
