Recently, at Christie's in New York City, a Picasso painting was hammered at auction for a record-setting price of  $179 million. The painting is called Pablo Picasso's "Femmes d'Alger" (Version "O").

The last time the paining hit the market, it went for $31.9 million dollars in 1997, purchased by a European collector.

However, the new buyer has remained anonymous. Originally thought it was Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber Al Than, the prime minister of Qatar. But sources now say it is not him.
