An Amazon.com Inc. painting from the late 19th century has sold for $1.9 million at a Christie’s auction house in New York City.
The painting, which is in the American Art Museum collection, is a “classic goya portrait of the artist’s signature Cat Face,” the gallery said.
It was made in 1877 by the artist, Goya, and was bought by the Goya Museum of Fine Arts in 2009.
It is the second painting by Goya to be sold by Christie’s.
The first sold for more than $3.9 billion at a 2010 auction.
The sale was announced on Wednesday and the auction house said it will auction the painting later this year.
It had been on sale at the New York auction house since February.
The Goya museum said the painting was one of a handful of Goya’s work, which included the “Cat Face” and the “Souvenir of the Virgin,” that were sold for an estimated $600,000, the highest price ever paid for a painting by the French artist.
The auction house did not disclose the price for the “cat face” and “souvenirs.”
