IN A COMPETITION we ran last month in conjunction with the Grove Dictionary of Art, we asked readers to predict how much a painting by Monet would fetch at a Sotheby's auction on 28 June. The painting - Nympheas - went for pounds 3,081,500, only pounds 168,500 less than the pounds 3.25m predicted by our winner, Mrs J Kelly of Wallingford, Oxfordshire, who wins a weekend for two in Paris and a trip to Monet's home at Giverny.

The five runners-up were:

Elizabeth Kettleday, Lancaster; Anthony Frost, Canton, Cardiff; Aanal Chandaria, London W2; G Jones, Up Hatherley, Cheltenham, Glos; and Nicola Bain, Pinner, Middlesex. They each receive a Grove Dictionary of Art Online.
