The painting dated 1937 will be the star lot on traditional evening trades. Picasso depicts his long-term mistress and muse.
Given the great demand for Picasso's works around the world, this defining portrait is the ideal work of fine art to create a stir around 2018, said the chairman of the European branch of Sotheby's Helena Newman, adding that “we can offer a picture of such a caliber that we have never seen before on the market.”
The demonstration of the painting “Woman with a beret and plaid dress” will take place in Hong Kong (January 30 - February 2), Taipei (February 6-7) and New York (February 12-14). From February 22 until the trading day, Picasso's painting will be exhibited in London.
