A 1906 Claude Monet water lilies painting, Nympheas, has sold for £31.7m in London, as it became the centre of a lengthy bidding war between two telephone bidders.
Inspired by the lily pond in Monet's garden at Giverny in France, the painting was the top lot at Sotheby's sale of modern and impressionist works.
