A painting depicting Sophia Amoruso, the convicted killer of a Queens woman, sold Monday for more than $2 million.
The painting, titled “Sophias Revenge,” depicts the victim’s killer, who has not been identified, in a scene that was used to portray Sophia in the television show “House of Cards.”
It was painted on the wall of a home in Queens in 1998 by the painting artist, whose name is spelled “Amoruso.”
It is one of two paintings by Amorusos that were bought at auction at Christie’s New York on Monday.
Another painting, by the same artist, depicting the murder victim, sold at Christie for $1.8 million.
“We were inspired by the victim,” said Amanda Miller, the owner of the gallery selling the two paintings.
“Somalia is a big target.
The painting was purchased by a friend of Amorusoes family, who bought it on behalf of her parents, who live in New Jersey. “
It is very, very sad that somebody has done something so horrific and so heinous, that this could happen to someone like Sophia Amoros.”
The painting was purchased by a friend of Amorusoes family, who bought it on behalf of her parents, who live in New Jersey.
She said the family hopes it will raise awareness about the murder of Sophia Amaris, who was found dead at her home on Sept. 12, 1998, in Queens, about an hour from her home in the Bronx.
“She had everything,” Miller said.
“A great career, a great family, her children.
The family has asked for privacy during the auction, but Miller said she has asked the auction house to keep its doors open for as long as they need to. “
This is the first time in her life she had anything like this happen to her.”

The buyer of the painting was not immediately identified.
She told the New York Daily News that she plans to sell it at auction, along with the other Amorusian paintings that were purchased.
The sale also included a portrait of Sophia herself.
Amorusia, who is serving a life sentence for the 2005 killing of Dominique Housman, was found guilty of second-degree murder and attempted murder.
She received a life term for the 1998 murder of Dottie Johnson, who survived the attack.
The crime, in which her boyfriend, Michael Brown, was shot by police after a brief chase, sparked national outrage and led to a federal probe.
The killing shocked the country and sparked the nationwide movement against mass incarceration.
The case sparked intense criticism, with supporters calling for Amorusi to be released and for a new trial for the suspect.
