Claude Monet’s ‘Grainstack’ Painting Heads To Auction In November

NEW YORK—A painting from Claude Monet’s acclaimed “Grainstack” series is heading to auction next month and Christie’s says it could realize around $45 million ($59 million Cdn.).

The 1891 painting, shimmering with hues of reds, pinks, blues and yellow, depicts a close-up of a single cone-shaped stack after harvest.

Monet’s “Grainstack” series — 25 in all — was painted just steps from his home outside a farmer’s field in the French village of Giverny.

The one at Christie’s Nov. 16 impressionist and modern art evening sale is one of a few still in private hands.

Prior to the New York sale, “Grainstack” will be previewed at Christie’s galleries in Hong Kong on Oct. 17-19 and in London on Oct. 24-25.
