Kazuo Shiraga is famous for painting with his feet, resulting in action artwork such as this piece. This painting from the artist is included in Sotheby's upcoming auction for pieces from a private property and it has a guide price of $1,800,000-2,500,000 making it the most expensive piece expected to sell. 

 The artwork was obtained directly from Shiraga in 1964 and has been passed through descent to the present owner, meaning that this is the first time that the artwork will have been on public sale. Shiraga gained quite a following for his work so there may well be plenty of interested parties in bidding.
