A painting by Vincent van Gogh which was owned by the late actress Elizabeth Taylor has sold at auction in London for €16m.
The 1889 work Vue de l'Asile de la Chapelle de Saint-Remy, is one of the last Van Gogh painted before his death. The painting, which hung in Taylor's sitting room, was bought by an anonymous bidder.
The Taylor collection also includes works by Pissarro and Degas. The rest will be auctioned by Christie's on Wednesday,
