I love the "real" Scream. I like this sketch, too.
It's actually not a record high. According to wikipedia this Cézanne piece sold for a record £160m (more than $250 million) to the Qatari royal family.

At that level of prices, it's never about artwork; it's gambling on the artwork appreciating in future so it could be sold for profit. So hype helps that; the more expensive it is to begin with, the more it can be expected to appreciate.

Pricing art is nuts anyway.
I spend as much time painting a picture that turns out well as I do one that doesn't. They go on the gallery wall at the same price.
A little picture of mine can be better than a big one - but I have to price it by the square yard for the gallery system.
Once you get away from the man hours spent, how do you place a value on these things?
Ultimately an object is worth what people are prepared to pay for it.
In that sense 'The Scream' is worth what it's just sold for.
