Quick Takes

February 04, 2009

A sculpture by French Impressionist Edgar Degas sold for $19 million Tuesday at Sotheby's auction house in London.

Degas' "Little 14-year-old dancer," a bronze depicting a young ballerina with her chin tilted up and hands clasped behind her back, was bought by a private bidder from Asia.

Sotheby's said the sale price is the highest ever paid for a Degas statue. The previous record was $12.3 million at Sotheby's in New York in 1999.
