Portrait Exceeded Sotheby’s Estimates

The Portrait easily exceeded Sotheby’s estimates by $19 million.

But the Portrait still fell short of Les femmes d’Alger, which stood at $179.4 million in 2015.

An anonymous buyer owned the Portrait, but Emily Fisher Landau, an art collector, previously owned it.

What is Femme à la montre?

Femme à la montre is Pablo Picasso’s painting that captures the image of Marie-Therese Walter, a French model and Picasso’s clandestine lover.

She is depicted seated in a throne-like chair against a vibrant blue backdrop.

Picasso had created about 150,000 pieces of artwork in all his life.
