Pablo Picasso’s Green leaves and Bust was sold for whopping $106.5 million. The world gripped by Picasso’s fever is yet ready for another painting. June 12 will see the auction of ‘Still life with Bowl of Cherries’ in Illinois, Chicago through the Bloomington Auction House.
It is an original unframed piece of oil painting that is an abstract still life depictions a bowl of cherries. Believed to be from the 1930’s by the owner it bears Picasso’s signature on the upper left. No restoration has been made to paint under blacklight except the restoration of a crack in the center of the piece and upper right.
The painting is considered to be an original gift from Picasso to Berggruen who in turn gifted it to a private collector and thus it was finally acquired by the current owner. It measures about 9 inches by 11 ¾ inches and is fresh to the market meaning that it has never been offered for public sale. The painting is in excellent condition and is ready to find a new home.
The bidding starts at $100,000 and the estimated price at which it will be sold in the auction is $400,000 to $1 million.
