The Meeting of Antony and Cleopatra, 41 BC

By Lawrence Alma-Tadema, 1883. To be auctioned at Sotheby's with an expected price of $3-5 million. However, Alma-Tadema's The Finding of Moses recently sold for $35,922,500, smashing the record for any Victorian painting -- more proof that people of my generation, with tastes like mine, are taking over the art world -- so nobody really knows what this will fetch.
