Four of Pablo Picasso’s women from the collection of Washington, DC real estate developer Sam Rose and his wife, Julie Walters, will go on sale this fall at Christie’s in New York, carrying a combined low estimate of $28 million. “As a noted Picasso connoisseur, Sam Rose spent many years assembling these compelling portraits with his wife, Julie Walters,” says Conor Jordan, Deputy Chairman, Impressionist and Modern Art, Christie’s. “From the lyrical eroticism of the years of Marie-Thérèse eclipsed in turn by the tumultuous era of Dora, and then the vernal rebirth of Françoise’s presence, through to Jacqueline’s classical, watchful aura, this suite of works shines a glorious light on Picasso’s art and traces its progress over twenty-five years of innovation.”

Galerie Max Hetzler
Oudenarder Str. 16-20
The Max Hetzler gallery is one of the largest and oldest in Berlin. It consists of three different exhibition spaces that each show different artists. It shows top quality pieces by well known contemporary artists. It was previously located in West Berlin, but now sits in the eastern part of the city near to what used to be the Berlin Wall. This location is ideal, as East Berlin is often compared with the bohemian Greenwich Village in New York City. Both are cultural centers brimming with creativity and art.
