Vincent Van Gogh's final masterpiece will be on the auction block in November at Sotheby's in New York. It will be on display at Sotheby's London in October. Its estimated value is $34 million, the highest appraised value ever.

If you saw the film about his life, this is the painting he was doing while standing in a wheat field and was disturbed by noisy birds flying overhead. Experts claim that the painting was done on July 10, 1890. Shortly after completing the work, he shot himself.

(It probably took 100 years for the paint to dry).
