Three sketches from the Spanish painter Francisco Goya that had been missing for 130 years have been sold for £4 million (SFr8.13 million) in London.
The drawings, deemed to be in "exceptional" condition, were discovered in a private Swiss collection. They had never been framed or seen the light of day.
The works from the man considered the last of the Old Masters were last recorded at a Paris auction in 1877. Tuesday's sale took place at Christie's.
The piece, They Go Down Quarrelling, sold for £2.28 million – more than twice the pre-sale estimate and a world record for a Goya work on paper sold at auction.
Repentance sold for £959,650 and The Constable Lampiños Stiched Inside a Dead Horse sold for £769,250.
