The works of Pablo Picasso, a world-famous artist, are set to go up for sale in the city of Las Vegas. MGM Resorts, the hotel group that owns eleven of the artworks will sell them in October at Picasso restaurant, where the pieces have been located for more than 20 years. Sotheby’s, the leading American art house, will organize the sale.

Attendees of the sale can expect Picasso’s Femme au béret rouge-orange, the oil painting of Marie-Thérèse Walter, a young French woman who was his lover and muse. Other works that are going to be sold include: “Buste d’homme,” his painting from 1969, and Aiguière — Visage, a white terracotta vessel he produced in 1954. According to Brooke Lampley, Sotheby’s chairman, the pieces cover the entire period of Picasso’s career.

The sale which falls around the artist’s 140th birthday is an important event in Las Vegas’ art business. It is one of MGM Resorts’ goals to turn Las Vegas into a bigger art destination, Lampley said. MGM Resort group’s chief hospitality officer Ari Kastrati also shared their plan of creating a more open art collection that would give opportunities to artists from different communities.
