Christie's Global President and auctioneer Jussi Pylkkanen gestures during the bidding of Pablo Picasso's Women of Algiers (Version O), which sold for nearly $179.4 million, making it set a world record for artwork at auction during a sale at Christie's Rockefeller Center in New York, Monday, May 11, 2015. Experts say high art prices are driven by artworks' investment value and by wealthy new and established collectors seeking out the very best works. (AP Photo/Kathy Willens)
