The centerpiece of the Sotheby’s May 14 Impressionist and Modern Art Evening Sale in New York  will be Le Repos.

Like Femme au Béret, this stunning masterwork from 1932—estimated to sell from $25–35 million—is a portrait of the Spaniard’s muse, Marie-Thérèse Walter, Picasso’s so-called “golden muse,” and according to Sotheby’s Simon Shaw, “arguably the love of his life.”
