A sculpture by famed impressionist Edgar Degas Thursday fetched $41.6 million at an auction at Christie's in New York, marking a record for any work by the French artist so far.

The sculpture, "Petite danseuse de quatorze ans," (The Little Dancer Aged Fourteen, the title given by the artist) was among the collection of Anne h. Bass that went under the hammer during the auction house’s 20th/21st Century Art sales series at Rockefeller Center in New York. EFE
