Speaking after today’s sale, Christopher Apostol, head of Old Master Painting at Sotheby’s, New York, said: “This is not only an exceptional painting, it is also the epitome of beauty, and of a moment when so much of our Western civilization began. Today’s result is a fitting tribute, both to the painting itself and all that it represents. “
