7. ''Figure Writing Reflected in Mirror"

Francis Bacon's "Figure Writing Reflected in Mirror" tied with the Lichtenstein at $44.9 million at the same Sotheby's sale.

The 1976 painting depicts a seated man wearing nothing but underwear, scribbling on a white sheet of paper, with his back and profile toward the viewer. The man is reflected in the mirror. It was the highest price for the British artist since the record sale of his "Triptych" for $86.3 million in 2008.
