Juan Gris's 'favourite' $25m artwork should live-up to the hype in New York

One of the most significant Cubist still-lifes ever to come to auction will be sold by Christie's...

Here's a quick reminder that Christie's upcoming Evening Sale of Impressionist and Modern Art is taking place in New York on November 3.

The auction will be led by significant works by Henri Matisse, Juan Gris, Joan Mir, Alberto Giacometti, Gustave Caillebotte, Georges Seurat, and Pablo Picasso.

Overall, the complete sale of 85 lots is expected to achieve in excess of $200 million.

Among the highlights of the sale is Property from a Distinguished Private Collection: Four Modern Masterpieces, a superb group of works led by Violon et guitare.

The 1913 pieces is by Cubist artist Juan Gris (1887-1927), and is widely recognised as one of the most significant Cubist still-lifes ever to come to auction.

It also happens to be a personal favourite of the artist himself. The painting bears a record estimate of $18-25m, and is sure to live up to the hype.

The previous record was set in November 2008 at Christie's New York with the sale of Gris' Livre, pipe et verres of 1915 for $20.8 million.
