Turner’s Painting Sells for $13 Million, Why?

Joseph Mallord William Turner's "The Temple of Jupiter Panellenius," painted 1814-16.

The Temple of Jupiter Panellenius Restored made a very high price today at Sotheby’s Old Master Paintings sale.
Richard Feigen the art dealer got $11.5 million for himself (he had paid £648,000 in 1982) and Sotheby’s took the rest of the $12.9 million premium price. [from bloomberg]

I can't believe people still have this kind of money to buy just ONE painting.
Is it not too much for these days?
