SCOOP: Picasso's

" Adjugé, Vendu "...
It was to a packed room at Sotheby's headquarters in Manhattan and resounding applause that the famous painting "Woman with a Watch" by the legendary Spanish painter was sold. It only took a few minutes of bidding for the painting to be sold to great acclaim on Wednesday, November 8, 2023.

Second most expensive sale of a work by Pablo Picasso
Considered one of the artist's masterpieces and described as "Picasso's Mona Lisa", the painting was sold at auction last Wednesday evening for the deferential sum of 139 million dollars by the illustrious Sotheby's auction house in New York. This is the second highest price ever achieved for the Spanish master, who died 50 years ago. The painting highlights one of the Spanish master's companions, the French painter Marie-Thérèse Walter. She was his "golden muse", the muse he met in Paris in 1927, when he was married to the Russian-Ukrainian ballet dancer Olga Khokhlova. The painting belonged to New York collector Emily Fisher Landau, who died this year at the age of 102, and whose collection of works by Willem de Kooning, Mark Rothko and Andy Warhol was offered at auction during two special evenings last week at Sotheby's in New York. The painting was on display in Mrs. Landau's living room in Manhattan, the auction house said.

Emily fisher, one of the greatest collectors and benefactor of the twentieth century
The legacy of the wealthy New Yorker is distinguished by her deep and long-standing commitment to leading institutions, in particular the Whitney Museum of American Art, as well as by her profound attachment to the art and artists of her time and her unerring instinct as a collector at the highest level. Fisher Landau has assembled one of the world's largest collections of modern and contemporary art, with over 100 works auctioned at Sotheby's on November 8 and 9.

Against a backdrop of international turmoil, the art world continues to post a brazenly healthy performance!
