A painting by Pablo Picasso has sold for more than $100m - marking the fifth work by the Spanish artist to sell for a nine-figure sum, APA reports citing BBC.

Woman Sitting Near a Window (Marie-Therese) sold for $103.4m (£73.5m) on Thursday at Christie's auction house in New York.

That figure comprises $90m for the painting itself, with fees and commissions on top, Christie's said.

The auction house had estimated the painting would sell for $55m.

The work, titled Femme Assise Pres d'Une Fenetre (Marie-Therese) in Spanish, was sold after 19 minutes of bidding.
