One of the leading artists of the impressionist movement famous for his portraits and scenes from everyday life, Manet died in 1883 at 51 . The price almost broke the $104.3 million record for the Swiss artist.It fetched $70.7 million, just topping the previous auction record for the artist of $69 million.
