"Lakeshore with Birches" (1901) by Gustav Klimt. Never offered at auction before, the landscape was included in Sotheby's sale of Impressionist & Modern Art in London on Feb. 8. Though it failed to attract a bid at the public auction, the Klimt was quickly sold privately for 5.6 million pounds, Sotheby’s said.
