A view of the River Thames painted by Claude Monet has sold for almost 18m - more than twice its estimated price

Claude Monet masterpiece sells for 18m

An anonymous telephone bidder paid 17,940,000 for Waterloo Bridge, Temps Couvert during a sale at Christie's auction house in London.

The sale - the second highest price fetched for a Monet - kicked off a week of huge sales on the London art market.

Monet's Nympheas, an iconic image of water lilies, is expected to make 10-15m at auction on Tuesday.

It is one of only a few of the lily paintings still in private hands, and will go under the hammer at Sotheby's as part of the auction house's impressionist and modern art sale.
