An auction of the contents of Sir Elton John's London home raised more than Â£1.4 million. An oil painting, entitled Madison Square Park, sold for Â£67,200, and a 19th Century portrait of Lieutenant George Dyer, painted by James Northcote in 1817, fetched Â£55,200. Sir Elton sold off the items so he could redecorate his home in a more modern style.
