May 3 (Bloomberg) -- Sotheby’s managed a dazzling record price and sale tally at last night’s auction in New York, even as more than a dozen lots went unsold. The star was one of Edvard Munch’s four versions of "The Scream," which set a record for a work of art at auction when it sold for $119.9 million. The sale smashed the previous record of $106.5 million, established in May 2010 by Pablo Picasso’s "Nude, Green Leaves and Bust." Mark Barton reports on Bloomberg Television's "First Look."
