In the Saleroom: Pablo Picasso's Mousquetaire à la pipe

Description

Pablo Picasso's late period Mousquetaire à la pipe from 1968 was the top lot of the May Christie's Impressionist and Modern Art evening sale, selling for $14,642,500. The vivid, full-length image portrays the artist in one of his favorite guises: the brave and adventurous musketeer with long, wavy hair, clad in doublets and ruffled collars.
