A 227-pound 6-by-8.5 foot painting called “My Wife’s Lovers,” by Austrian Artist Carl Kahler, is so large it ripped the nails out of the wall when the auction house Sotheby’s tried to hang it.

Originally Sotheby thought the painting would fetch up to $300,000 but a mystery buyer actually paid $826,000 today for a piece of art touted as the largest and most expensive cat painting ever.

Forty-two of Kate Birdsall Johnson’s 350 cats are featured in the piece — which she kept at her 3,000-acre summer residence in Buena Vista, California.
