Helena Newman, from Sotheby's, said:
"We are delighted that this stunning and monumental portrait, which is part of the defining series that introduced his 'golden muse' to the public eye, fetched such a strong price....
"This particular portrait is a striking and notably modern-looking work from one of the artist's most celebrated periods."
