Pablo Picasso was an extremely creative man; who could think of making a portrait of himself without being overly self-critical. In a one-of-its-kind auction-cum-display, the Metropolitan Museum of Art plans to put up all its Picasso paintings, drawings, sculptures, and ceramics on public display. This would include the accidentally damaged and restored artwork called the “The Actor” as well. The auction will be done for two Picasso art pieces, one by Christie’s and another by Sotheby’s. These rare masterpieces to go under the hammer are “Nude, Green Leaves and Bust” (Christie’s) and “Femme au Chapeau, Buste” (Sotheby’s).
The “Nude, Green Leaves and Bust” is touted to earn between $70 million and $90 million, while the “Femme au Chapeau, Buste” is said to get $8 million to $12 million.
