Rare Michelangelo drawing sold for US$ 24 mil. at Paris auction Updated: 2022-05-19 05:35:56 KST

On Wednesday an ink drawing of a nude man, by Michelangelo sold for more than 24 million-US-dollars at an auction in Paris, according to the Christie auction house.
The sale breaks a previous record for a drawing by the artist, when "The Risen Christ" was purchased for 9.9-million-dollars.
Designated a French national treasure, the work was barred from export from France for 30 months.
However, the French government recently removed the ruling, allowing the drawing to be offered without restriction to global collectors.
The pen and brown ink sketch is titled: 'A nude man and two figures behind', and is thought to be one of Michelangelo's early works, dating to the end of the 15th century.
