Sigmund Freud’s nephew, 85 year old artist Lucian Freud, has set a new record for the highest selling painting for a still living artist.

His painting titled “Benefit Supervisor Sleeping” sold for over $33 million dollars at Christie’s in New York City. The model in the painting is now 51 year old Sue Tiley. She’s forever become a part of Freud’s large-scale, life-size painting series of portraits celebrated from the late 1980’s through the mid-1990’s.

Freud’s work hasn’t always been so widely recognized and appreciated. It’s taken a career of nearly 70 years to reach his fame status he maintains today.
