Edouard Manet’s “Self Portrait with a Palette” sold tonight in London for 22.4 million pounds ($33.2 million) with fees, a record for the artist at auction.

It was bought by New York dealer Franck Giraud, who was bidding in the room. The work had been estimated to fetch between 20 million pounds and 30 million pounds at hammer prices. The Manet is among 51 lots in Sotheby’s sale of Impressionist and modern works.
