SPECULATION CONCERNING POTENTIAL BUYER OF PABLO PICASSO, LES FEMMES D'ALGER (VERSION 'O')

New York

There has been a great deal of speculation in the art market about numerous individuals who may or may not be buyers of works of art in our recent sales including the Pablo Picasso Les femmes D'Alger (Version 'O'). Christie's does not disclose client information and does not comment on the identity of any buyers.  In this particular instance, Christie's was not contacted by Page Six for comment on this gossip. Rumors will no doubt continue but they remain just speculation.
