Isabella and the Pot of Basil, one of the best-known examples of pre-Raphaelite painter William Holman Hunt's work, has set a new auction record at Christie's.
Selling on June 17 in London, the painting topped the Victorian, Pre-Raphaelite and British Impressionist Art sale at £2.8m ($4.8m).
The previous record for Holman Hunt's work was set a £1.8m ($3m) in 1994, marking a 2.38% per annum rise in value.
In total, the auction realised £10.1m - a 26.2% increase on the £8m pre-sale estimate.
One of the main features of the sale was the collection of Viriginia Surtees, author of the catalogue raisonne of Dante Gabriel Rossetti.
Rossetti's Rosa Triplex, a magnificent triple portrait of William Morris' daughter, May, sold for £902,500 ($1.5m).
Prosperine, one of the greatest compositions that Rossetti ever produced, made $5.2m in November 2013 to set a new auction record for his work.
