Jackson Pollock is the 2/1 favourite, with Monet 3/1 and previous record holder, Van Gogh and Picasso both 5/1.

"The Scream is an iconic work of art and it will take something as easily recognisable and famous to break the record that was set in New York on Wednesday evening", said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

2/1 Jackson Pollock
3/1 Claude Monet
5/1 Van Gogh
5/1 Pablo Picasso
