An oil-on-canvas painting by Gustav Klimt has become the third most expensive artwork ever sold in Europe – after bringing a record price of over $79 million CDN at Sotheby’s in London.

“Bauerngarten” (Flower Garden) became the Austrian symbolist’s highest priced landscape work. The 1906 painting is described as depicting “an informal profusion of poppies,daisies and roses.”

“Bauerngarten” follows Alberto Giacometti’s “Walking Man” and Peter Paul Rubens’ “The Massacre of the Innocents” on the list of the top three most expensive works sold in Europe.
