Sotheby's BID on Tuesday unveiled a painting by Amedeo Modigliani that's expected to fetch more than $150 million at next month's auction, making it one of the most expensive ever to go under the hammer. The painting, called "Nu couche (sur le cote gauche)," or "Reclining nude," adds to the bonanza of high-priced art expected to come up for sale in May at the major auction houses. Sotheby's CEO Tad Smith told CNBC that the Modigliani — the largest ever painted by the famously troubled artist — will attract bids from around the world.
A painting of a reclining nude by Italian artist Amedeo Modigliani is set to go under the hammer in New York on May 14 with a record sale estimate of $150 million, auction house Sotheby's announced on Tuesday. "Nu couché (sur le côté gauche)", or Reclining Nude (on the left side) shows the entire figure of a woman lying on white sheets, looking casually behind her back and fixing her gaze directly at the viewer. "Modigliani creates a new kind of nude for the modern era," said Simon Shaw, the global co-head of Sotheby's Impressionist and Modern Art Department.
Irish bloodstock billionaire John Magnier is selling an Amedeo Modigliani nude estimated at $150 million, the most for any work of art at auction this season, according to people familiar with the matter. The 1917 “Nu couche (sur le cote gauche)" depicts a reclining female nude from behind, one leg bent, looking calmly over her shoulder at the viewer -- a pose almost identical to “La Grande Odalisque" by Ingres from a century earlier. The piece, previously owned by casino mogul Steve Wynn, will be the star lot of Sotheby’s Impressionist and modern art sale on May 14 in New York.
