OUTSTANDING COLLECTION SURVEYING THE CAREER OF PABLO PICASSO TO BE PRESENTED BY SOTHEBY’S IN NOVEMBER 2014.
Sotheby’s is pleased to announce the sale of Picasso Through the Eyes of a Connoisseur, a collection of over 125 etchings, linoleum cuts, paintings, sculptures, lithographs and ceramics by one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. The offerings begin with a single owner sale of Prints on 3 November 2014 that presents a comprehensive view of Pablo Picasso’s entire career – from 1923 Le Collier to works from the 1970s – with estimates ranging from a few thousand to $600,000. Led by a number of Picasso’s most celebrated works, including Portrait de Femme au Chapeau a Pompons et au Corsage Imprime from 1962 (est. $400/600,000) and Portrait de Jeune Fille d’après Cranach le Jeune, II (est. $400/600,000) from 1958, the breadth of the collection illustrates the artist’s wide ranging iconography. Paintings and drawings by Picasso will also be included in the 4 & 5 November Impressionist and Modern Art Evening and Day sales.
“The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider’s web.” Pablo Picasso.
