PARIS (AP) — A rare painting by Vincent van Gogh was sold at auction recently by Sotheby’s Paris for EUR13.1 million (USD15.4 million).

The sale of Street Scene in Montmartre was highly anticipated as it was one of the few paintings by the Dutch Impressionist master to still have been in private hands. The auction house had expected it to sell for between EUR5 million and EUR8 million.
