NEW YORK - A portrait by Pablo Picasso of the woman who influenced him
in the late 1930s and early 1940s sold for $95.2 million, the
second-highest amount ever paid for a painting at auction, the auction
house Sotheby's said.

"Dora Maar au chat," which depicts Picasso's mistress, went to an
anonymous buyer in the room who was competing with telephone bidders
during Wednesday's auction.
