The evening auction at Christie’s on Wednesday fetched $16.8 million, its strongest Latin American sale in two years.

"It was a sale full of excitement and surprises with world auction records for key Latin American modern and contemporary artists," said Virgilio Garza, Christie’s Latin America art chief.

"We were delighted with the runaway success of Frida Kahlo’s "Survivor," which fetched $1.1 million against a pre-sale estimate of $100,000-150,000."
