Rhein II

"Rhein II", a photograph of the Rhine River by Andreas Gursky, was sold for $4.3 million at Christie's, breaking Cindy Sherman's previous record of $3.89 million, set in May. A Roy Lichtenstein record was broken too, with a single work going for $43.2 million."As actor Leonardo DiCaprio looked on in blue jeans and blue baseball cap, the pop artist's 'I Can See the Whole Room!... And There's Nobody in It!' helped London-based Christie's reach a total of $247.6 million."

For more than 150 years, the Big Ben has been a national symbol for the United Kingdom and London, particularly in the visual media. When a television or film-maker wishes to indicate a generic location in Britain, a popular way to do so is to show an image of the Clock Tower, often with a red double-decker bus or black cab in the foreground.

Vizcaya Miami 

Vizcaya was built in the City of Miami by agricultural industrialist James Deering, who wintered on the property from 1916–1925. Today, the extraordinary European-inspired estate includes a Main House filled with art and antique furnishings, ten acres of formal gardens on Biscayne Bay, a hardwood hammock (native forest), and an historic village that it is being restored for public enjoyment.

dali

May 11, 1904 – January 23, 1989

Dalí was a skilled draftsman, best known for the striking and bizarre images in his surrealist work. His painterly skills are often attributed to the influence of Renaissance masters. His best-known work, The Persistence of Memory, was completed in August 1931. Dalí's expansive artistic repertoire included film, sculpture, and photography, in collaboration with a range of artists in a variety of media.
